A recent study (April 30, 2008) has shown that long falls in the crux dihedral can cause severe ankle trauma.<br>
Taping a splint for the hike out. Cauldrons and Warlock in the back ground.<br>
The dihedral takes seemingly good green aliens and blue metolius... however, 4 of them popped. WHy the 5th held is a mystery.

Yeah, thats me. I had surgery a month ago and got to toss the crutches yesterday.
If the 5th piece had blown it would have been a lot worse cus I think I would have hit the ledge right of the belay. You would need a helicopter to get out of there. Dec 10, 2008
