VARIOUS FALLS ON ROCK, INADEQUATE PROTECTION

Wisconsin, Devil’s Lake State Park

Six rock climbing accidents were reported in 1989. Four were solo climbers, and three falls resulted in serious fractures. The other two falls were not adequately protected either, and one resulted in a fractured femur. (Source: Devil’s Lake State Park, Visitor Accident Reports)
