Hey fellow climbers! SOS. Helped rescue an injured climber off Bourbon Street this afternoon. We left an anchor of cams and slings at the top on pitch two on FROGLAND and another anchor in the middle of pitch two as well. Unable to retrieve the gear today or tomorrow. Being as it is such a popular route. Please, if you recover the gear call or text Linda @ 503-686-8975 Much appreciated! Be safe out there!

(The injured party also has a few cams left in Bourbon Street- if those are retrieved we'd be able to get them back to their rightful owners. Thank you so much!)

Did your gear make it back to you?

What happened out there, sounds like quite a bit of blood on Frogland?

Hope you and the injured party both get all of your gear back. 

I don't know the story but here is a photo of the aftermath.

(Note : this is not my photo, it was taken by another climber)

Given that you don't know the story, you should probably not post photos like this. They add nothing necessary for climbers unrelated to this incident, and could be disturbing or painful for those involved and their loved ones.

Em Cos we (mountain project) have been over this. It is up to the poster whether they want to provide any data that they have.

Agree with Em Cos at this point.

Hope all parties get their back, the wounds heal quickly, and good karma to you for helping out.
