A CLIMBER fell 65 feet to his death in a freak accident after falling rocks cut his safety rope as he scaled a Portland cliff, an inquest heard.

To add to the discussions earlier about the complaints on these posts -- I don't mind them at all. The majority of your posts are climbing related, or rappelling, or something gear related that would cross over into the climbing world.

I think Majid brings a valuable service to keep us informed of accidents. With the above being the freak accident type, I don't know what those guys could have done differently to have prevented it, but I think it's something we should be aware of anyway.

Edited to add: Condolences to those involved and their families
