As we were leaving Eldo today (around 3:15 pm) we saw a number of emergency vehicles and RMR staging across the river from the base of West Ridge. Any one know what happened? I hope everything turned out ok.

Some friends were next to the climber that fell. It sounded like the climber got one piece in, fell, it pulled and they decked. He was able to hike out unaided, however, so hopefully he is doing well.

Saw the same vehicles. Glad to hear that the climber's ok!
