    I just assumed she was climbing the stairs, likely in an unordinary fashion.

    But ya I can see how what i said when i was in the shed last night seems lame. It was more that she had just gone climbing and was living the life she wanted to live.

    Usually when two climbers die it's some sort of simul-rap or simul-climb accident. And since there's no real reason to be doing any rappelling on that route I'm gonna assume they were simul-climbing through easy pitches or something. And or a failed gear anchor but that seems less likely.

    Edit: ok so I thought this route tops out but it's a rap off so the accident could have been rappelling but usually that type of incident involves one climber not two.

    there was a third climber on a separate rope system with the two that fell. They were simulclimbing he was not, per YOSAR

    Yeah........ Simulclimbing is pretty dangerous

    Other climber was probably gonna jug up a fixed line after they lead a few easier pitches to move fast.
