It may have been a lovely weekend weather-wise but it was tragic weekend for climbers with 2 fatal accidents.
Mathew Wilkes died when he dislodged a substantial loose block on Fool's Paradise on Gowder Crag in Borrowdale. Information from those at the scene suggest that there is still a lot of loose rock on the crag so please take care for the forseeable future if you intend visiting Gowder.
In a separate incident, a climber was killed and his partner injured, when they fell from a route on Shorn Cliff in the Wye Valley.
