nah it always hot air on chockstone!

dunno if I should donate the $ now, its bad luck! Today I had my closest call ever.

I had been trying my project at nerriga (NSW) gave up and Ros had a wander up it on top rope to were i had fallen off. Another climber belayed and I sat below. Next thing a football sized rock (formaly a hold) departed from the wall (ros is 5 kg heavier than me!!) took skin off Ros's leg and hit my hand then ankle.

The position In which I sat ment that my legs were spread and I was hunched over. If I had my legs together both would be broken, and had I been hunched over taking off my shoes, like a few seconds previously I would be dead! Instead of just hurting.

Wear a helmet at all times. especialy when cleaning a new route!
