Oklahoma Rock Quote

"Then Duane recalled a blank wall back in the Narrows, and they tackled that. Two feet below the top of a climb he intended to call Dr. Kildare, Duane fell, going all the way to the ground and breaking his leg.

So in the hospital, with "unwanted assistance from Dr.Kildare," Duane began compiling the guidebook Southern Exposure. But it was finished before the leg. With five weeks left to go on the meter, at the height of the summer heat, Duane took a hacksaw to his cast. His foot was still so swollen that he had to borrow a larger climbing shoe, but the next day he limped into the Narrows and finished leading the first ascent of Dr. Kildare." - Doug Robinson

Location
