I think people are having a reaction to the disparaging way he talks about his girlfriend in his post and comments. He doesn’t sound like a man who is a bit frustrated that his girlfriend upset his plans despite lots of warnings and made a snap decision because he was angry, he sounds like a guy who barely even likes the person he’s with – his first paragraph makes a snarky little joke about her eating while he’s hiking, and it doesn’t get better from there.
I agree that the situation is ESH, his girlfriend got plenty of warning about his plans and should have taken his advice on doing easier hikes first, but in their relationship overall he sounds like kind of a dick, and I think that’s why people are swaying towards the harsher judgment. Oh, he’s an arrogant jackhole; there’s no question about that. But people seem to be missing that she’s a bit bratty and also manipulative, at least judging from her actions in this scenario.
