Not really a "whipper", but I took an extreme fall while telemarking down Left Gully in Tuck's with Rob Adair.
I've had "life" flashes 3 times in my life. This flash was longer than I would've liked.
Midwinter, hard as a sidewalk.....I'm still to this day happy to be alive.
If Rob chimes in, I'm sure he'll agree.
