Latest is that he actually broke his pelvis in 3 places. They bolted and plated that all back together this morning. Surgery went fine. He is currently having some minor facial damage fixed. Internal bleeding stopped shortly after the accident. Looks like a long but promising road to recovery.

As for the reason for decking, 35' up on Shockley's is very easy terrain and didn't have any pro in, or useful pro. Just slipped off. A sobering reminder to place gear/focus on the 5.easy

Thank you for the update. Wow, sounds like he has a really rough road ahead, but I am happy to hear he should make a full recovery.

And we hope whatever insurance he has covers it all.

Conditions may well have been an important factor causing this accident. The cliffs were very wet pretty much all morning and early afternoon the day of the accident with the dense fog.

We brought a patient to St. Francis ER shortly after fallen climber arrived and I caught wind that he was there. I have been keeping fingers crossed that he was going to be ok despite life threat type injuries ever since. I am so glad to hear that he's ok. Best wishes for a full and fast recovery.

Also glad. He will fight for every inch of his rehab but he is still in the game.
