He was with a group of friends and decided this climb was a very beginner climb. However, any climb is DANGEROUS!
He fell 60 feet, landed on his face and had to spend 3 months in ICU with multiple broken bones, brain damage, and deep open wounds from rock rash.
Today you would never know of this fall, he is in college with a great GPA, single father, and looks great. He still suffers seizures and has mild brain damage. He was a miracle you may not be! Please think safety first no matter how skilled you are.
