WE SAY: Achieve your goals but not at cost to community
OUR VIEW: ADVENTUROUS spirits, spontaneity and risk-taking make this world go around
Some people love to challenge themselves, push their bodies to the limit and bask in achieving the unachievable.
We say "bravo!" to accomplished goals and dreams - but not when they put other people's lives at risk or cost the community and organisations time, effort and funds.
State Emergency Service crews have had to rescue yet another climber on treacherous Mt Beerwah in the Glasshouse Mountains.
This time, the female was climbing by herself when she became trapped in a precarious position above a rock shelf about 100 metres off the ground.
The woman was even-tually rescued, but only after a seven-man SES crew had made an arduous climb in vain and realised a helicopter would be needed.
The iconic mountain is closed for a reason - to protect the public from loose rocks and big boulders that can fall at any given moment on the climb.
We can't just try to save stupid people from themselves with "mountain closed" signs.
Sometimes only money talks - especially when it hits the climber's hip pocket in the form of a hefty fine.
