Stich, I expected better from you... someone *HERE

And yes, yes I do. I'd love to HEAR the backstory related to this photo. How was that much force generated?

There was a climber who hung out at the Gunks in the 70s and 80s who was missing most of an index finger. Rumor had it that he lost it by falling after he stuck it through the eye of a resident piton.

Grabbing a QuickDraw or a resident pin constitutes direct aid.

[sarcasm] Nah, somehow that gnarly fucking pic of the quickdraw piercing the dude through his goddamn funny bone didn't stick in my cranium. Totally humdrum and light. [/sarcasm]

If he dies of blood loss do we upgrade the route to A5?

Nah, if he hung there long enough to die of blood loss he totally had time to free the route, the route stays c3.

It actually looks fake to me. Who would leave it in and tape the gate back so it didn't press on the hand? It would have been easier and less painful to take it out. The skin is also not held up where it supposedly runs underneath. I also suspect there would be more blood involved with such a deep puncture. M Sprague

Everybody having had a first emergency response training!!!!!
do not ever take anything out of a bigger wound! cut as much as you can of the object and fix the rest as good as you can to the wounded body!!!!!!!!

it is not a fake, it is a photo taken after rescue!

Yeah really? Pretty much anyone who has had ANY type of basic first aid training knows not to pull something out of a wound like that. Take it to the hospital and have them do it, you are going to have to go to the ER to have it sutured anyway so might as well let them take it out as well. And obviously the tape was put on to keep the gate from pressing into the skin.... Sheesh a little scary, I would suggest you take a w-emt class before you injury a partner in the backcountry!

Open it up in Photoshop zoom-in and look at the edges near the cut. It is clearly a fake. Brian

As a certified couch surfing first responder I am unsure if it is fake or not!! I am sure that you would need more than a roll of tape to keep me from pulling it out, unless I couldn't. Also tape to keep me from killing the nearest dick-hole with a camera. John Husky

I'd be stoked to have this picture afterwards if this were my hand, provided I'm not permanently injured by it! If it got infected and I lost half of my arm, I'm sure the picture would evoke some ugly emotions though Ben Brotelho

One can't tell by looking at the image in photoshop if it's real or fake.

Puncture wounds in muscle, fascia, and connective tissue typically don't bleed profusely unless a vessel is injured. It would likely bleed more when the foreign object is removed. A tourniquet may already be placed on the limb. The two central digits appear swollen from a real injury.
