36 year old Jonathon Woods, known as Woody, was climbing with his girlfriend on Sunday the 20th of March at the Pembrokeshire sea cliff of Bosherston Head near St Govans when he was hit by a falling block of rock.
Mr Woods, who was an extremely experienced climber, suffered chest injuries. He died later in hospital.
Mr Woods, an environmentalist, was born and brought up in Cheddar. His late father Michael Woods was a well known naturalist and Chairman of the British Mammal Society.
Woody was a well known and universally loved character on the UK climbing scene. The climbing community is devastated by his loss, it was such an unfortunate accident. Our thoughts go to his family and friends.
