Another accident at Rumney
« on: Yesterday at 02:32:39 PM »
On Sunday, a local Rumney climber fell before clipping the first bolt on Sally's Alley (11c) at the New Wave Wall.  She was evacuated by the fast squad and by local climbers.  Her prognosis is unknown.

The route was well within her limit, and in my defense the guidebook does say "stick clip."

Be careful out there, even if you think it is "easy" ground.
