I was walking to the base of Nutcracker Saturday morning and passed a climber being taken out on a stretcher.  Fortunately he was conscious, and did not appear to have any head wounds.  When we got to After Six we noticed a line of solid-looking gear going up the corner and a bloody cut open shoe near the base (and some more blood in various places).  From what I could gather the climber fell when traversing out of the corner and either didn't have gear or it pulled and he pendulumed hard into the corner, breaking his ankle (?).  

Anyone have any more info?  Is the climber doing ok?

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
