FALL ON ROCK, FAILURE OF NUT

New Hampshire, Cannon Cliff

On September 4, 1983, a climber (30) fractured his arm when he took a pendulum fall on the fifth pitch of Sam’s Swan Song (5.7). He and his ropemates got to within two pitches of the ground when MRS helped speed things along. Good self-rescue. (Source: Bill Kane, New Hampshire Mountain Rescue Service)
