Does anyone have more info on this accident and the condition of the climber? wrcbtv.com/story/22725932/life...

It sounds pretty bad and I wanted to wish him well and help if I could.

The climber is still in critical condition, trying to recover from a skull fracture and bruising and swelling to the brain. Special thanks to everyone who was involved in the rescue sunday. JNorcia

Glad to hear he is doing well. As far as I could tell it looked as though at least one or two pieces had pulled. Helmet saved his life IMO. I saw someone get proposed to at the lookout literally a few seconds before I learned that guy decked. What a swing of emotions. The guys belayer was a good friend to the victim; Was helpful, calm and thought clearly throughout the process. To anyone that knows the injured party let him know lots of folks are wishing him a speedy recovery. RobMcV
