I have been instructed by Parks Canada that I will, for the time being, have to go through an Access to Information request in order to obtain any information related to the accident. The report is not yet approved for distribution to the public.
You can find the necessary information at the following website:
The 'Technical Report' on Philip Robinson's accident has recently been approved for release. If you and your group are still interested in receiving a copy, please send me the most appropriate mailing address and we will send a copy down to you. This report deals only with our Public Safety Specialists' assessment of the equipment and set-up used, and a review of possible scenarios that may have lead to Philip's loss of control.
Once received I will try to share the findings with the forum members.
I was just informed that there is new information from the pathologist and this information is being worked into the final report. No date was given as to when to expect the report. I will post again when I receive more news.

Well, while we're waiting for the report I was perusing Wikipedia and noticed that the "greatest purely vertical drop" was listed at 4100'. Mt Thor's vertical extent is in the range of 3300'. Anyone ever aim a clinometer down the SLOPE at Thor? I'm sure you will not find it vertical. I would like to thank Dan T. and WWunderground for the confusion. Rebel
