Leader Fall Fatality - Discovery Wall
In 1989, a climber was leading Ordeal on Discovery Wall.
He took a leader fall, and fell out of his harness.
(He had not properly doubled the strap back through the buckle).
He was able to momentarily grab the lead rope during the fall,
but he was not able to hang on, and he fell to the ground,
sustaining fatal injuries.
This is based on my recollection of reports of the accident,
over ten years later. The 1989 date was reconstructed from
a report that in 2000, the most recent fatal accident was
11 years prior. I will attempt to get more details on this accident.
