"Martin Berzins took a whipper on Sunday at Kilnsey, plummeting head first to stop only six feet short of the ground. He was 'resting' on a bolt at the time when the mild steel bolt (circa 1987) snapped.
Even more ironic that the route was none other the 'Frankie Comes to Kilnsey' - the scene of the bolt chopping wars of the eighties!"
It does highlight an important point though - not that most sport climbers are middle aged, but the number of dodgy bolts on Yorkshire limestone.
Perhaps the thread about the non-existent resources of the Yorkshire Bolt Fund is worth resurrecting?...click here for thread.
