The popular Dorset climber Damian Cook has drowned whilst deep water soloing at Porto Cristo in Mallorca on Wednesday 28th April.
Damian was one of the Cook brothers who was active in the vibrant Dorset climbing scene of the 1990s and has some good first ascents to his name including Frazzled at Wallsend. He was married with a young family.
We would like to pass on our condolences to his family and friends. He will be sadly missed.
