This doesn't make sense. Lightning is a serious threat to golfers as well as climbers.

I read sbaclimber as saying that lightning is a common risk, and we climbers have so many more additional ones.

Though he has obviously never seen me golf...

That is the second climber that has died of a freak accident at that crag in the last few months

In august a large rock rolled onto another climber crushing him.
