Mountain Climbing

Mountain Climbing To the Editor.— Your cover of Nov 8, 1976, is certainly appropriately entitled "Mountain Sickness." Those three guys are crazy to be climbing in the unheard-of fashion in which they are shown. The fellow in green is apparently rappeling from a rope that appears to be attached to the mountain. He shouldn't be rappeling without the use of gloves. The fellow in yellow is serving no useful and much unuseful purpose. Within a fall of the rappeling man in green, all of the man in green's weight will be over the man in yellow's shoulders; he will at least be squashed to the boulder, but more likely, he will be tipped over the edge of the cliff. The fellow in red, who apparently is belaying, doesn't appear to be anchored to the mountain. Further, he is belaying without the use of gloves, a strict "no-no." Certainly mountain pictures are pretty, http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA American Medical Association

Abstract

To the Editor.— Your cover of Nov 8, 1976, is certainly appropriately entitled "Mountain Sickness." Those three guys are crazy to be climbing in the unheard-of fashion in which they are shown. The fellow in green is apparently rappeling from a rope that appears to be attached to the mountain. He shouldn't be rappeling without the use of gloves. The fellow in yellow is serving no useful and much unuseful purpose. Within a fall of the rappeling man in green, all of the man in green's weight will be over the man in yellow's shoulders; he will at least be squashed to the boulder, but more likely, he will be tipped over the edge of the cliff. The fellow in red, who apparently is belaying, doesn't appear to be anchored to the mountain. Further, he is belaying without the use of gloves, a strict "no-no."
