"Safety Soapbox" Archive -
I found this reference someplace not too long ago, and it reinforces
what I've preached for a long time:
"Studies on risk management in the backcountry indicate that it is
not only the mastery of technical skills but leadership qualities,
such as judgment, decision making, and positive interpersonal dynamics,
that strongly correlate to safe and enjoyable trips in the backcountry."
So I'll leave that as a parting thought for all of us to keep in mind.
