A recall leads to lawsuits because injuries are connected to the product being recalled thus a lawsuit. Plaintiff’s hope the three can be connected

Combination of a Products Liability statute, an Expert Witness Report that was just not direct enough and odd facts holds a retailer liable as manufacture for product defect.

Product Liability takes a different turn. You must pay attention, just not rely on the CPSC.

The Access Fund is starting an Anchor Replacement Program and Fund to “fund” it.

Introducing New Anchor Replacement Fund
anchor replacement fund_enewsThe Access Fund and the American Alpine Club are proud to announce a new joint grant program available to local climbing organizations and anchor replacement groups seeking funding for fixed anchor replacement at climbing areas across the United States. By partnering on this program, the nation’s two national non-profit climbing organizations are filling a need unmet by their existing climbing conservation grants–replacing fixed anchors at local crags. This grant program is made possible by corporate support from ClimbTech, Petzl, and Trango. “Across the United States, bolts installed in the 80’s and 90’s are aging, and there are growing concerns of anchor failure, incidents, and access issues,” says Access Fund Executive Director Brady Robinson. “While bolting standards continue to evolve, there is an immediate need to address aging and inadequate fixed anchors and increase support for local and national partners leading these efforts.” The inaugural Anchor Replacement Fund application round is now open, and applications are due by September 15. A joint committee made up of experts from both organizations and the anchor replacement community will manage the review process. Grant guidelines and forms can be found on our website.

Save The Homestead!
Save+The+Homestead_enews.jpeg

With over 250 sport climbs on 12 limestone walls, The Homestead in central Arizona is one of the best winter limestone climbing areas in the country. The climbing at The Homestead, as well as the access point, is on a complex matrix of private, Bureau of Land Management (BLM), and state trust land. In 2014, the bank foreclosed on the 1,687-acre Dripping Springs Ranch, which overlapped key portions of the access road, trailhead, and first few dozen routes of The Homestead. If sold to a non-climber-friendly buyer, access to the entire Homestead area, including the coveted walls on BLM land, could have been lost. Now we need your help! Using funds from the Climbing Conservation Loan Program, Access Fund temporarily acquired the 360-acre northern block of Dripping Springs Ranch as an access point to The Homestead. But we need your help to raise $235,000 to secure permanent access and cover critical costs for the acquisition, public right of ways, and long-term stewardship. Access Fund is proud to announce a broad coalition of partners for this project, including the Arizona Mountaineering Club, Climbing Association of Southern Arizona, Concerned Climbers of Arizona, Queen Creek Coalition, and Southern Arizona Climbers Coalition. We are also working with the BLM and State of Arizona to record a public right of way across state trust land and repair the most eroded portion of the road.

It’s Time to Rate Grants
Grant_Sign.jpg

Each year, the Access Fund awards grants to local climbing communities with worthy projects that preserve or enhance climbing access. The Access Fund Climbing Preservation Grants Program is an example of membership dollars at work in local climbing communities across the country, and you have the opportunity to review qualified grant projects and rate them, providing valuable input to our grant selection committee as to which projects you want your dollars to support. There are 8 worthy projects up for funding consideration during this round, including a climbing area acquisition, education and signage, two stewardship projects, a rescue team, two recreational agreements, and local climbing organization start-up. Please take a moment to rate these important projects.

Action Alert: Tell Congress to Reauthorize LWCF
LWCF+climber-4_enews.png

We need your help to protect a critical land conservation tool. The Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) is one of the most effective tools we have to conserve land and improve outdoor recreation opportunities–and it’s going to expire forever this September unless Congress reauthorizes it. The LWCF has helped Access Fund and its partners permanently protect multiple climbing areas, including Palisades Park in Alabama and Bozeman Pass in Montana. We are currently working on an acquisition at Castle Crags in California, which could be in jeopardy if Congress doesn’t act today. LWCF is funded by a percentage of the more than $6.7 billion in annual offshore oil and gas lease revenue, not taxpayer dollars. Every year, LWCF can receive up to $900 million of offshore gas and drilling revenue to spend on conservation efforts, though Congress often appropriates it at a lower amount. If you haven’t already done so, please take 5 minutes to help us protect this critical conservation tool. Use our easy-to-use letter writing tool to contact your Congressional representatives and encourage them to reauthorize the LWCF!

Take Action!
Access Fund Awarded Elite Land Trust Accreditation
ltac_seal_green_crop.png

We are proud to announce that Access Fund has been awarded land trust accreditation from the Land Trust Accreditation Commission, an independent program of the Land Trust Alliance. The Access Fund is one of 317 land trusts from across the country that has been awarded accreditation since the program’s inception in 2008. Accredited land trusts are authorized to display a seal indicating to the public that they meet national standards for excellence, uphold the public trust and ensure that conservation efforts are permanent. The seal is a mark of distinction in land conservation. “Land Trust accreditation is an important milestone for the Access Fund,” says Access Fund Executive Director Brady Robinson. “It helps strengthen our land acquisition and protection program and it illustrates to local climbing organizations, landowners, and partners that Access Fund is the leading organization in land conservation standards, tools, and resources when it comes to protecting and stewarding America’s climbing areas.” Since inception in 1991, the Access Fund has supported 55 land acquisitions in partnership with land trusts, public entities, and local climbing organizations, totaling 15,943 acres across 27 states.

Strange, camp director/AMGA certified rock guide charged with endangering children, on climbing trip

Obviously, there are some facts missing, this is really dumb, there is an overzealous prosecutor; someone in the family knows someone in county office or the plaintiff’s attorney pushed to have the county sheriff make their case for them.

It’s really sad to see an 11-year-old girl injured. It’s said to have a group of kids scared by the experience. However, there are some things about this that are confusing.

Here are the facts from the article. The defendant & defendant, first in a criminal case and second in a civil case was the camp director of a church summer camp; Camp Otterbein (an affiliate of West Ohio Conference of the United Methodist Church). The defendant took the kids to Hocking Hills Rock Climbing Rappelling to do something.

During the day either a female camper was lowered or rappelled into a hole. (I’m guessing it was a formation, why would you lower someone into a hole?) The rock formations are small and composed of long ago eroded water features. (I grew up in the area and have been there several times.) The article describes her as rappelling, however, when questioned the article states she said she was lowered in when she became stuck.

It is not clear what time she started her descent; however, she was not rescued until 1:30 AM. The girl suffers from compartment syndrome, which allegedly started to occur after she was discharged from the hospital.

The defendant allegedly created a substantial risk to the health or safety of a child, by violating a duty of care, protection, or support, which is the definition of child endangerment. (It’s a 10 page statute, so I’ll not post it. It is a good statute; however, it is also the statute used to hold adults criminally liable when a kid gets in trouble because the adult allowed or left the child in a position to get in trouble.)

The child suffered:

…she suffered injuries including redness and bruising around her thighs due to the harness; bruising and abrasions on the right side of her stomach; abrasions on her back from her neck to her buttocks; abrasions on her right shoulder; bruising in her armpits; and lacerations between her legs where the harness was holding her.

I highlighted the injuries that would come whether you were trapped or not wearing a harness. The severity of those types of injuries might be increased based upon the length of time in the harness. However, if she was wedged, then she might not have had any weight on the harness. Also the injuries under her armpits suggest she was wearing a full body harness, but that is only speculation.

There were two things that did get my attention in the article. The girl admitted to investigators that she had volunteered to go down the hole, and no one had forced her to do so.

The second was that the mother told park rangers that she was going to find an attorney. (My kids stuck in a hole, but I’m going to find an attorney…..)

The defendant camp director was a certified “instructor” through the AMGA.

I’m trying to get more information about this accident/incident. Not much will be forth coming until after a plea bargain or criminal trial and then only what is in the criminal files. The civil case will take longer.

What a mess.

The article is: Camp director charged with endangering children
