A chunk of rock broke off and fell on him

Although I did not know him, condolences to his family.

I have climbed there quite a few times and would never have though something like this could happen there. It's all really super good quality quartzite. One would never expect something to just break.

Info: Waterval boven is one of the best climbing destinations in South Africa with almost 1000 sport routes from easy to extremely hard. Good climbing all year round.

Ronél Swart, Kahl’s sister, said on her blog that her brother died while doing what he loved most: rock climbing.

“He went to Jesus from the place where he felt closest to God, the mountains.”

my condolences
