Re: Heli evac off north walls

if i was severely injured, i would not want the risk, however minimal, of people climbing above me. I think Perry nailed it. Perhaps they could have given the waiting party a second rope to help them descend the gully.

Heli evac off north walls

We saw a heli rescue on the north walls in the area of Angels Crest this afternoon (Saturday, June 15). Does anybody know what happened? I hope the rescued party is ok.

Re: Injured climber at Octopus Garden on Sat. May 11, 2013

what I take away from this fall is the importance of knotting the rope ends before rapping. Thank you for taking the time to relate what happened. We all make mistakes and sometimes those errors compound resulting in injury. I give you credit for your bravery and honesty on this forum. Your insight...

Re: Beginner's "What gears to get" question

It's one thing to know what you know. it's quite another to know what you don't know. The latter is a sign that you know something and may be in a position to evaluate whether your "experiences" have taught you enough not to get yourself or someone else killed. If you don't know what you don't know,...

Weekend partner needed-have gear and rope

Re: Hanging Gardens at the Papoose
