I fell at the crux of this route and pendulumed into some sharp flakes at the base of the roof on the east end. My shin whacked into them, took a nice chunk of skin off, and I had to get some stitches.

Dang, Tristan. That's nasty. I thought shin guards were only necessary for soccer. Time to pad up. Jul 18, 2015
