I think we need to remind ourselves of what can happen climbing. So post more pictures like this.

Broken ankle

Landed flat footed while rappelling and was on crutches for a month. Definitely not as bad as the previous pics, but it still would've been a death sentence if I was living in the wild.

Duuude, throw a NSFW tag on your title, not what I wanted to see while eating dinner.

Shattered talus. 15' fall

Not me but a close friend. Plate and six screws. 8 months recovery before climbing again.

yeah putting images like this on my fridge would help with the diet.

On a tangent, recently they tried to make cigarette mfgs put grotesque images on their packaging such as pictures of black lungs or a trachiotomy. It was really crossing the line, and I don't even smoke. I don't want to see pics of organs healthy or unhealthy, regardless. Imagine they adorned climbing gear with these sort of accident pictures.
