come now, is katahdin really all that especially dangerous?

can you cite one case of a dead child being carried off the mountain?

can you name one of other place in the country with a similar restriction on people below a certain age not being allowed above treeline?

can you make an argument that is not about safety but rather about how letting a 5 year old child above treeline can damage the environment in ways that, to cite another post, allowing unaccompanied 15 year olds can not?
