State: British Columbia, Canada

First, this information comes from a press release issued by the attorney representing the injured client so it totally one-sided and meant to make you feel back for the client.

Second, the grounds of the lawsuit are based on a breach of contract, according to the press release that was created when the guide said, “on belay” and the client said “climbing.”

The suit alleges, “When [the guide] called out “on-belay’” and the plaintiff responded by calling back “climbing,” there formed an ancillary agreement between [the guide] and the plaintiff whereby [the guide] became immediately responsible for securing the safety of the plaintiff while climbing up the particular pitch on belay. [The guide] broke this agreement when he let go of the rope, letting the plaintiff fall, wantonly and recklessly putting the plaintiff in mortal peril.”

Third, the lawsuit also is suing the Canadian Mountain Guides Association because “a duty of care in relation to, amongst other things, the training of the guide.”

Why Is This Interesting?

I believe this is the third lawsuit I’ve read about where a client is suing a guide. These are Extremely rare.

Furthermore, the facts of this situation are probably not relayed correctly so it is a little difficult to understand what exactly happened.

This is going to be a mess.
