Don’t Drop Rocks

Here’s a report from climbers in the Black Hills climbing  on Buckhorn Mountain who dropped a small rock onto their rope.

“It was pretty impressive how it did not really cut the rope, but the one square inch that the rock landed on where the rope laid on an compressed the rope and melted it in 2 and left a little chunk in the middle. Only 3 of the inner cords held. Wicked Scary!”
