Will, i left your gear with a friend who works at Nomads in Idyllwild. By the time, I cleaned everything and got back, they were closed. I'll be up there today and I'll make sure this makes it to the store. I had to leave a locker for my rappel, but cleaned everything else.

To the spanish/Italian gentleman who let me use your gri gri. Thank you very much, I have left your gear with the same person from Nomads. I forgot your name, but gave him your description.

Thanks again.

Were you on Tahquitz Saturday? Do you know anything about the helicopter? An accident/rescue?

We were on the Long Climb yesterday (5/12) and saw the chopper as we were near the top of the climb. We didn't realize anyone was injured, we thought they were doing training missions.

Jim, yeah i was there. I was on the Trough when the rockfall happened, but i was on the optional start below the large ledge where the standard start is for the Trough. (if that makes sense) i was leading up, really just killing time and getting an extra pitch in since there were parties above me. I was also the first person to reach the injured parties at the top of the second pitch of the Trough. I just helped fix lines and direct traffic. There were a couple of other guys that helped lower the injured.

There's more info here in the SoCal forum on the accident. The two injured climbers are expected to be okay.
