Description

This section of the wall looked good for a few visits. I got on it, it was way loose, and I squeezed up a small crack to safety. On the way down, I was cleaning some gear, pulled my weird rope line to move back to the left to get off a small ledge, and rocks broke. I leapt, pulling a nut, and due to my having jockeyed some gear, my next cam that held me from tumbling down the hill still allowed me to fall almost 30 feet into a boulder field of quartz, rhodonite, and wild rose bushes. It resulted in major traumatic brain injury on impact. I am only here now due to my helmet.

Location

This is on the left side of Equinox (the west side is very loose in places).

Protection

Nuts and cams. You may as well toprope project the area first. There is lots of loose stuff.
