Can anything fall into a black hole?

    From what I understand, from a frame of reference outside a black hole, it takes an infinite amount of time for a test particle to cross the event horizon. But it takes finite time for any black hole to evaporate. It seems there is no horizon left to fall through.

    Funny. I expected an uncontroverial "no" as an answer, hoping for some substanciating equations...
