Yup, read this;


Good response Will, I appreciate your words.  This same thing happened last season in Nipigon Canada.  The climber got pumped, pitched off the top of a pillar with no pro close to him because he was too pumped to put it in and landed in the hospital.  I have no idea if he is walking today.

The ice climber I look up to has only fallen twice.  One was on him, and he fell on a bolted mixed route.  The other time the dagger broke and he went flying.  And that is in like 20 years of Ice, good ice climbers just do not fall.

I fell once on a mixed route, hit the ground and fractured a vertebra in my back.  I haven't fallen since, and hopefully never will again.  My attitude has changed since then, and hopefully the video guy's attitude will as well.


  1. He started walking 3 months ago. Apparently he went back to try and finish Obsession last month. He backed off this time.

  2. WOW! He didn't walk for 9 months and he is already trying to lead Ice again....

  3. Yup! I questioned why my buddy would let him try. I never met the guy so I can't comment on his character. I think it was 11 or 12 surgeries he went through. After the 7th is when he was told he could keep his foot. He has more metal than the terminator.
