"The two guys [were] really experienced climbers. One of them has done a lot of mountaineering around the world," said friend and rock climbing author Rob Baker.

"The other one was a really keen climber — super safe, super cautious [with] a young family as well which is devastating.

"They were [for] more than 20 years climbing, both of them. A lot of experience, Mike especially a lot of mountaineering.

"Often with these small accidents, it's a combination of errors which cause them. It's not often a single, fleeting moment."

In 2014, a Victorian man was killed at Moonarie when he fell 50 metres onto a ledge.

"This is the second accident, fatal accident, in 40 years of climbing up at Moonarie," Mr Baker said.

He said he had spoken to one of the men's families and said "the whole climbing community is reeling at the moment and in shock".

One mistake could 'cause a chain of events'

The alarm was raised on Saturday evening after the two men did not return to their camp site near the base of the climbing area, which stretches for several kilometres.

Mr Baker said another climber used a drone to conduct an aerial search the following day.

"When the guys didn't come back on Saturday night, back to camp, he sent a drone up … to just have a look on Sunday morning and he found the scene of the accident," he said.

Mr Baker said the two victims were "extremely experienced and skilled" climbers.

"They wouldn't want people to stop climbing.

"I think they would also want people to learn from a mistake so it's a really good opportunity to put that education out there and understand what caused it."

The circumstances of the men's deaths are still being investigated and while Mr Baker said an equipment failure was unlikely, it could not be ruled out.

However, he suggested a likelier explanation was that it was simply an accident.

"You might just forget to put a piece of protection in or one piece might fall out or something and that might be enough to cause a chain of events unfortunately," he said.

"It's tragic, but sometimes these accidents do happen. At a place like Moonarie, sometimes in the upper sections there is some loose rock, but experienced climbers know how to deal with that.

"Most climbers you meet are really cautious, their attention to detail and safety is second to none.

"We enjoy climbing, we want to go home at the end of the day."
