Free-solo FAIL on December 26th, 2014 as a result of broken hold on choss rock. Broke both ankles ( calcanueus and talus), left leg (6 cm of tibia and fibula went missing), back ( 4 vertebrae), left arm (smashed radius and ulna), left hand, damaged jaw and multiple lacerations on the face. Currently recovering and fighting to keep spirits high.
As of January 12, 2016, almost a year later, I have climbed difficult and soft 5.12 climbs in the gym with two fused ankles. Building up to climb outdoors again.
Below is a link to the accident if you are interested in reading. Alot of life lessons to have learned from this. Grateful to be climbing and living life normally again.
Text below was written before accident ;
A runner for most of my life, I never expected to get into climbing but here I am and loving it, although grateful I do wish I started much earlier. I've just completed 4 years of climbing in August of 2013. I usually slog myself to a climbing gym but get super-psyched when I climb outdoors, especially the Riverside Quarry. Thanks, Louie.
My climbing is centered just as I did running. Build up mileage, alot of it. Runners will usually build a base for a few months before "race day". This is what I usually end up doing and try to be patient about it. Goal for the next year is to link Half Dome and El Cap in a day. With the right amount of work I think it can be done.
I recently took on a group of very awesome students and began to coach them and teach them the skills of Rock-climbing. It was a long and difficult process to get this club approved at my district, but through alot of hard work I managed to get an official climbing club approved at a local high school I work at. Since then I have not climbed outside for myself so much. Its a real joy working with these kids. I posted a link to the page so give a shout out and support. :)
