Comments: Wow, that DT self rescue sounds epic! Never heard about that one but Merrill was never one to rant about his achievements even though in the 80's he was already a legend to a lot of us.

About the fall story he told at the Devil's Tower campground - My memory is pretty shakey as well but I'm pretty sure he was talking about the BIG fall he took while soloing the Great White Icicle. I believe he broke one of his tools & got scuffed up a bit but was otherwise unscathed...at least physically.

Comments: Shot was taken by my photographer friend Erik Ostling from the other side of the canyon.
I will try to find the rest of the pics he took as I think there might be some good ones of us (I mean Merrill - I'm sure I was looking pretty desperate) on the nice pillar up a bit from this pitch...dragged up many routes by Merrill back then but definitely learned a lot while getting my ass kicked.
