Yesterday a climber rapped off the end of her rope, coming down from the first pitch of Thin Slabs, apparently sustaining a badly broken tibia.
Anybody have any details on how it happened?

See "Today" thread. Rope ends were uneven, no stopper knots.

Ah, so that's the cause. I add my sympathy and get-well-soon wish to the pile.
