Close call on Narcolepsy last night

Postby sfotex » Wed Aug 05, 2009 7:07 am

Climber went for a 30 foot grounder in the Narcolepsy area in BCC last night. He had some lower leg injuries.
Story was he was backing off, when he fell and his piece pulled.
I think he was on Mr. Sandman.
++ vibes ++ to the climber

The recovery is a little better once you learn to hold a wheelie in the wheelchair.

Hopefully he's only on crutches. Good recovery to ya.

So your story would have been something like:

50 year old man is seriously injured spelunking when large bear knocked a loose rock from the cavern entrance. The rope held, said officials, but the rescue was difficult due to the loose terrain. An expert team was sent to extract the injured man.

Ok, I had a hard time getting 11 bolts on that route, but I got it done last night. Be careful not to mistake the 5 bolts under the overhang with the belay station... I spray painted 'the end' at the top to help people out.

We were driving down from the Pile when all this was happening. There were a lot of vehicles parked by the road and traffic was stopped, looked serious, we saw it was a climber. Glad it was nothing worse.

Using a small font won't reduce the shame associated with admitting you went there...
