Had one like this at the gym. Seen a few actually, usually not much screaming with these, lots of endorphins going on. Do you have a point in trying to gross people out?

I'm calling BS on your calling BS. I took that picture. That happened in March. He's now walking on it again after four months of surgery and bone grafts. Here's a link to the news story. www.wjla.com/articles/2012/04/after-overnight-delay-injured->>>

What was the route? was he leading? How far did he fall?

Any other helpful information?

May he have a speedy recovery!

It was a short pendulum fall under 10 ft on a traversing tight hand and finger crack on Old Rag Mountain. Piton Crack. Last route of the day. There's a small chunk of rock, a little arete that sticks out, that his ankle slammed into and that's what caused the damage. A freak occurrence more than anything. I doubt you could reproduce the accident again if you tried. Just shitty luck.

He's ok, walking around on it now, four months later, and will be back out on the rock in the spring.

Glad to hear things turned out well.

This is a uniquely distinctive injury and one I used in an educational setting with some case studies of mountain accidents. Just wanted to say thanks for posting up the info.

This problem haunted my dreams for 6 years after failing to send in 2008.  Finally got to try it again -- now I can sleep.  Photo Darin Limvere.

Climbing at the Belvedere crag near Nago with a great view of the northern end of Lake Garda and the town of Torbole sul Garda below. June 2013.

Thanks for the follow-up info, Jake. And good job refuting the always-expected comments on these internet stories regarding the financing of the rescue.
I'm glad to hear your friend is back on his feet and looking to return to climbing in the spring.
