I think this may have been a "staged" scene by previous climbers looking for a laugh. Judging from the decompostion of the carcass I would say that it is too decomposed to have been sitting there since I was last up on the slabs when there was no deer there.

Yeah, I can't imagine a deer going anywhere near those slabs, big horn sheep maybe... but a deer??

This was there in november of last year.
Didnt look like a hoax to me. We tried to actually cut him out. I am not sure what date this photo is from. from the looks of it, it was before we went up there. We cut the ratty old fixed line on the slab below and replaced it with a fresh static line. None of us wanted to put our hands on it. one of the legs was wrapped super tight as if the animal struggled so hard it cut into him or somthing.
I think it was big horn sheep or mt goat. Which I have seen up there. For sure not a deer up that slab.

I've seen Mule Deer at times in RRC, but not too often.

A deer got caught up in the fixed lines on the approach slabs. When we were Batmaning up, this carcass was supporting our weight. If the bones had snapped, we would have shockloaded the anchor...
