This article is typical for this local newssite. Absolutely no information but if anyone else knows what happened it would be interesting to find out.

Quote from thread on redriverclimbing.com by user ctb:

"Just wanted to report, as a first responder on the scene saturday night at pistol ridge, there are a few inaccuracies in this report. Most notably, the fall height is being reported as 40 ft when in reality the climber fell from no more than 20 ft off the first bouldery section of way of the peaceful warrior. This section of the route is very tricky to protect and definitely runout anyway you go about it. The report makes the assumption that the climber was inexperienced based on the fact that his first piece (a #8 nut behind s thin flake) failed. I want to stress that this is nothing more than assumption as a detailed inventory of his climbing ability was never taken."
