FALL ON ROCK, PLACED NO PROTECTION, CLIMBING ALONE AND UNROPED

Utah, Little Cottonwood Canyon

On November 11, 1987, a male (25) was climbing alone on Beckey’s Wall, on the route Half Finger (5.8). The hold he was reaching for had ice on it. His hand slid off, and he fell 15 meters, landing feet first. (Source: Thad Thome, Salt Lake County Search and Rescue)
