glad they made it out ok, sounds kinda weird that one guy topped out and the other didn't. Seems like he could have jugged up the rope and gotten the heck out of dodge.

Two rock climbers began ascending a climbing route, known as the Muir Wall, on El Capitan on Monday, October 14, 2012. The party was due to reach the top of the climb on Sunday night, October 21, just before a large storm, with several inches of snow, was predicted. The lead climber, a 24-year old male from Ontario, Canada, reached the summit just before midnight on Sunday night. The second climber, a 40-year old male from British Columbia, Canada, was forced to spend the night approximately 230 feet below the summit due to impending bad weather and a stuck climbing rope.

says the rope was stuck but sounds weird. Maybe someone who knows more will chime in.

Yeah, I'm with John. I'm guessing their "stuck rope" had something to do with hauling their gear- but personally, if there were a huge snowstorm coming my way I'd be way more worried about myself than my gear, and I would probably leave it and come back later.
