Smear:
Yikes! I hope he recovers ok.

DGoguen:
Yeah, wishing a speedy recovery.

When climbing Pinnacle Buttress, you get an overhead view of people on the Huntington Ravine hiking trail with time to view while belaying.
Almost every time during summer you see someone trend a little left on the slabs and it's horrifying to watch. Butt scooting, shoulder boosts, etc.

It looks steeper from that perspective and that adds to the feeling that someones going to pitch. I've even hollered over " The trail goes right, go right, go right".
