Hey all,

     While I don't know Jake personally, the caliber of our mutual friends makes it apparent that he is a hell of a guy.  His friend who set up the GoFund me page understates the extent of his injuries a fair bit and the long road to recovery that he's facing.  Also, to be clear, from mutual friends this was not someone out jackassing around, from what I know of Jake  he is not someone to be reckless or careless, this was a tragic accident that we likely will never know the cause of.  It sounds like a truly harrowing time for Jake and even more so for his wife.  I hope that our community of climbers and lovers of adventure can come together and help these two out in their time of need.

This could happen to any of us . These are the times we need to come together and help our fellow climbing community members out. I'm sure any amount you could afford they would greatly appreciate.
