I'd really love to know if anyone has any information about how this poor fellow is doing. The descriptions of the fall he took have been perhaps too vivid and he is in my thoughts constantly.

Also just fyi, what I remember from last November is that the first pitch has only one pin, the one before the first crux. (It is easy to place a back-up cam right next to it.) I understand there used to be another pin after you went around the corner to escape the overhang, but that one is gone. There is a good little slot for a purple Camalot, though. This is on the regular route, howver, and if you went up direct you wouldn't get this purple Camalot.
It's true, I have a blog. http://climbandpunishment.blogspot.com/
