Western Canada sees many Avalanches with many injury reports and over ten deaths a year. I would go as far as saying they are a common occurrence and not "rare"...Here is a good resource: old.avalanche.ca/cac/library/incident-report-database/view

comment What are the advantages of short climbers?
Have a look at Ramon Julian Puigblanque & Hyunbin-Min they are both around 5'3", you should be able to find lots about the way they train. Watch some IFSC competition videos, see how the tall athletes move through a section vs some shorter competitors.

comment How to go about replacing sport climbing bolts?
@WedaPashi Can you clarify, are you asking "when to replace a bolt/drill a new one" for reasons such as bolt erosion or fracturing of the surrounding rock? OR are you actually asking about when to "Chop" a bolt off sport climbs(which is dangerous and illegal)...

@Liam I climbed a route the other day where they removed the hangar on the thrid bolt forcing a run out to the fourth with groundfall potential...the climbing was easy but regardless it could turn deadly with a slip of a hand or foot.

@WedaPashi Regardless of the size make sure you have the knowledge of how to perform a crevasse rescue and all the necessary gear(Prussick Minding Pulley, Accessory Cord, Anchor...)

@WedaPashi Have a look at Sea Cliffs as the salt forces re-bolting at a faster rate than other crags yuo'll probably find good information regarding re-bolting. Example

comment How to go about replacing sport climbing bolts?
@Liam this whole controversial practice of chopping is not only limited to traditionalists, we now have Sport Climbers removing hangers on bolts to prove a point to the routesetter that they feel it is over-protected by too short of spacing between bolts ruining the flow of the climb... Can't we all just get along!

comment What does the term “Redpoint” & “Pinkpoint” mean
@Liam would you be open to adding Pink Point to your question as there is only one small difference, pink point the draws are on the rock, red point you put the draws up...
