We saw A LOT of blood on a rock below the south face of cap rock yesterday. It looked pretty new (same day) as it had not yet turned brown. Any one know anything? I hope the involved party is okay.

What you saw was probably the result of a bird of prey having nailed his breakfast...
Hoh man now I'm getting hungry.

Well there was blood on the wall next to the puddle like some one had put their hand on it. There was also a trail of blood leading to the parking lot. So unless the hawk has a driver license I am pretty sure it was a person.

Well okay , you should have indicated those details in your original post.
Sounds like someone perhaps got hurt and decided to self-rescue back to home or the nearest hospital.

As it should be..... nothing to see, time to move along folks.

I've heard about a guy who walked 12 miles out of The Gorge of Despair after tearing his ACL and MCL on a hard first accent. He rested for a day, packing the knee with snow, before the 12 mile slog back to the Ponderosa. Then, with a week left in his climbing trip, told his buddy to go find a partner and keep climbing in the beautiful Needles while he would sit and drink the days away with gin and tonics.

Now that is self rescue!!
