Topic - Fool's Paradise Borrowdale - very serious rockfall

Steve Reid on 18 Jun 2005 - mailgate.needlesports.net
Tragically, there was a fatal accident to a climber on the top pitch of Fool's Paradise, Gowder Crag Borrowdale yesterday evening when a large block came away.

There is still much loose debris in the vicinity and there may well be more unstable blocks in the top chimney.

Climbers are urged to avoid the crag in general and this climb in particular until the local Mountain Rescue Team have had a chance to assess the situation.
