It does sound like Max was pretty on top of it, and Corey had people watching out to help him.

Despite the details, there is the underlying truth that accidents happen, climbing has inherent risks, people flip just by the chance of a hitch mid-fall regardless of where the rope is. Maybe the helmet wasn't ideal, but maybe a more ideal helmet wouldn't have helped in a different way. It's hard to accept, or maybe hard to *know* if you've gotten to the depths of accepting it.

Please, any updates on Corey's condition are appreciated. I'm sure we're all thinking about him.

(ps -- Adrian, maybe delete your quoting post now that Don's done the same?)
