Interesting, note the victim's attire.

Strange -- how did the victim end up there, I wonder?

He didn't look like the type that does free climbing, and his attire didn't look like he planned to do free climbing.

I'd really like to know how and why he got into that position.

Krenaud, somewhere on this forum I posted about two men who were wearing in trainers attempting to climb an english Lakes mountain in winter and who when we advised them that severe snow was forecast, ignored us and walked on - didn't Darwin have some theory  about these type of people ;)
