so you think an accident forum with parts of the climbing party and rescue effort present is a place for someone getting up on a soapbox and telling everyone who will read a full page of rambling how people *should* climb according to him?

There was a perfectly good conversation about how, why and how to prevent and in comes the super hero (in his on psychotic mind) to tell everyone how they should do it.

i think the belayer, victim and rescue folks deserve better than to be lectured at.

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.

Thank you. In such a forum folks should be seeking only good Karma.

This was all on the first pitch. I don't beleive any gear ripped. I think Max was an attentive belayer and did everything right. We did suggest the possibility of aiding through, which clearly didn't end well, so I think in retrospect, we should have told him to just lower off of gear and call it a day.

Also, I think that given the high impact force of his head on the rock, even with a more ideal helmet, I can't imagine that he wouldn't still have a serious head injury.

And finally, who is this donald perry character??? I am intrigued. He is apparently well known to this community?? Very bizarre.....

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?)
