5S down 1.  5H would have been down 4.

Please select up to 2 choices.

South is mostly to blame. His hand is not good enough for a forcing pass.
North is mostly to blame. His 4S bid was a bit of a stretch, in view of South's single raise, and his heart holding suggests at least one loser in the suit.
Blame is about equal. South's weak spades and his likely holding of two heart tricks should have inclined him to double, and North is not strong enough offensively to contract for 11 tricks.
