Very nice of you not to mention his affiliation with a guide service

I had an incorrect name in the post that has been corrected. None of those caught are associated with any guide service, as far as I know. One is a volunteer in a search and rescue group who deserves respect for the way he started treating injured climbers despite having just survived a potential near death experience.

Thanks. Curious why you'd start a second thread about it.

Also heard of a climber triggered slide in South Gully same day. Initiation of a sizable slab that only moved a foot or two, very low angle terrain.

I started it in the Epics and Accidents section before I saw that you started yours in the Ice Climbing section...

Oh cool!! Insert the other name and it certainly puts someone's "street CRED" on some shaky footing.   ;D
