fall from Central
« on: February 13, 2016, 09:10:12 pm »
 Jud, Charlie and myself rescued a guy in 1987 who took this same fall. Gearing up at the base of Central and tripped over his own feet somehow. Slid 200ft into rocks hard enough to split a Joe Brown clear in two! punctured lung?  blowing pink bubbles and a lots of gurgleing as well as a pretty bad head injury. he pulled through though :) Sounds like the one last week got off pretty easy.

Report says guide and client assisting had just *descended* Pinnacle.  Issat a usual downclimb/rap avenue these days?

If it's overhanging, I'm probably off-route.

Maybe climbed Pinnacle and were descending Central and report got it mixed up?
Have a quiche, now, or maybe a tort.  You deserve it!

I like to keep things simple, even if it's faaaken painful and miserable.

I usually hit the snow ramp at the top of the buttress and head over to Odell''s and down climb skier's right.  Quick and easy.
