rockfall no man's land silvermine main

Post by Jeroen »

dears,

i testified several massive blocks coming off from no mans land at silvermine main last saturday. Fortunately the belayer reacted promptly and i had the time to jump back. fyi: i was not climbing, but standing right underneath. the route seems to be intact, the rockfall did not affect the grade according to others. please be careful, when you are climbing, belaying or just wandering around. a helmet seems useful even if you are not climbing, also @ a crag that is visited frequently. although, it may not have made a difference in this case...
be safe!
