Fernkloof incident

Post by RyanKarate » Tue Sep 18, 2018 6:42 pm

An incident happened at Bergheim over the past weekend whilst climbers were packing up. Guys wearing balaclavas tried to chase them out the kloof to steal their gear. A huge amount of big rocks (football-sized) were hurled down on them. A splinter from one rock, broken on its way down, hit one of the climbers. Nothing was stolen in the end and injuries were limited to a broken ankle and gash to anothers head.

Herman Behrens of Bergheim (083 577 9377) and Frans Conradie (Mhlabatini parking - 082 950 4868) (please enter these numbers on your phones) have requested that everyone be aware and report any strange behaviour or incidents to them immmediately, so please keep your phones nearby. They've also specifically asked that people go into the mountain in groups, and not alone.
