FALL ON ROCK, PLACED NO PROTECTION

Colorado, Eldorado Canyon State Park, T-2

On October 7, a climber (38) was beginning to lead the eighth pitch of T-2 when he fell 16 feet, hitting the wall with his foot, resulting in a fracture. He was experienced (18 years and 5.11 leader), and this probably helped in his self-rescue rappel to the bottom. (Source: Tim Metzger, Park Manager, Eldorado Canyon State Park)
