Vibes for Shingo!

Looks like he got banged up yesterday . Hope it's not too serious and he's back on his feet soon to enjoy the powder slaying.
Vibes for a swift recovery!

Vibes for Shingo, heal-up quick mang.

This is the second time I have heard about someone being dropped at the Egg....

I don't want this to turn into the proj and its usual armchair quarterbacking but I have a related anecdote about the Egg... I was up there a couple weeks ago climbing with Triz and brought a 60m. I've been climbing mostly single pitch short stuff and didn't even think of grabbing the 70m. I had a terrifying moment while Triz was lowering me off Variety delight and I remembered most routes there required a 70m. Fortunately Triz had his eyes on the ends and I ended up down-climbing a bit. Same thing later happened on Groovin, the 60m only had a few feet to spare.
I've been to that crag probably 15 times and I still get caught off guard, usually without knots in the end of the rope and my dick in the breeze. It has happened elsewhere in the canyon, usually on stuff I've done before. It's way too easy to get complacent and get hurt. .

Again, all the best wishes to Shingo.

Shingo is tough. He climbs every other day if not every day. he will be back in no time. I unfortunately have been lowered off the end of a rope at the Egg too, my ankle is still gamey but other wise I got way luckier than THE man...Heal up fast dude! It's gonna be a great winter.

Best to Shingo. As others have said, if anything is needed, just say the word.

The picture of his helmet is sobering too. I've been wearing mine more and more after finally getting one that fits and this really pushes me to make it a habit.

shame on mike white for thinking cracks shouldn't be bolted in the first place and shame on him for calling it like it is and hurting my feelings.

A long time ago, while descending from a winter ascent of the Black Peeler, I rappelled off the end of my rope, tumbling 15 feet into the snow. The ends of the rope were not even...wasn't paying attention. I suffered from some badly injured pride.

Get better Shingo...prayers our with you, you're the Man!

I once came within an inch of doing the same thing at Dogwood. DOGWOOD. Had to stand on a ledge to level the ends a bit. I would have had to quit climbing.

Impressive success for the crowd-funding campaign Andrew Burr started for the deductibles. Over the asking amount in 12 hours and those were overnight!

That was my bad on back clips accident. Still feeling very bad about that, really sorry bro. It sucks how fast it happens and before you know it, its already too late :oops: . Check your knots and rope ends before climbing is the best thing you can do. Its not fun bring back bad memories but reminds you to keep your self in check. It was about this time of year that this happened to back clip and me. Really sucks to hear this happened to Shingo wish him the best and gets back out climbing asap.

Greetings, Everyone! My missus and I are here at IHC waiting to be discharged; it's only been four days since I cratered, so I feel extremely fortunate to even still be here, much less going home, given the circumstances. Thank you all for your concern and your continued support, and though it may be next spring 'til I tie into a rope, I hope to see all of you in our beloved canyon soon! Climb safely and WEAR YOUR HELMET, PLEASE! Cheers, Shingo

Good to hear you're getting out under favorable circumstances. Yeah, stick to the boards for awhile.
