This story certainly takes the biscuit for weirdest scenario of the month! Rock & Ice have the full report (which is worth reading). In a nutshell two mates, both climbers hence the relevance to reporting this on planetFear, have just pulled off a bit of an expensive stunt in Eldorado Canyon. One, a marine, didn´t fancy heading back to work after a break, so had his mate report him missing after a fall whilst climbing. After a week of searching, involving 10,000 man-hours, the reporter admitted that it was a hoax! There was some blood at the supposed scene of the accident, and the ´missing´ marine is still AWOL, so the case is not closed and foul play has not been ruled out. Only in America… ———————————————————————– If you have any news worth reporting please contact Matt – / 0114 2969114 ———————————————————————–
