A 22 year old female climber, broke her lower right leg in two places when she sustained a 2 meter fall while bottom-roping the route called Cain (10). The accident happened at about 11am on Sunday the 30th June 2013. The girl was not an MCSA member and was climbing with 3 friends at the time.
The accident appears to have been caused by a belaying problem. Some members of the KZ-N rescue team were climbing just 100 meters away when the incident happened, and so rescue was set in place within minutes. The patient was attended to by two paramedics and then she was hoisted to the top of the cliff and taken to hospital by ambulance.
