||MEMORIES OF DOROTHY|
||Rock came out from the route, hit belayer|
The team dealed with an accident that we feared it would come sooner or later, thankfully it didn’t have the worst ending. In the route “Memories of Dorothy” a big rock from the route, that a climber was holding to make the move, came off and fell on to the belayer. The helmet took all the blow and her shoulder was injured.
The Team has consistently noted that openers should clean properly their routes and that the urge to open 10 or more routes in one week, for example, usually leads to clumsy cleaning of the routes.
We thank all the people that helped with the rescue, like mr Zoidis, especially our boatman Pavlos Karafyllakis that offered his services for free and took us there in no time.
We hope Emmanuelle will recover quickly from her injuries.
