Hope your shoulder is getting better. Anything unusual happen that caused it?

Bill,
thanks. A reset in the ER & was good to go in about a week. No, nothing really out of the ordinary - weird sidepull (probably unnecessary) and then I heard the "pop" and was airborne. Thought a hold broke before the pain hit :) First time it happened to me....I'm sure the guys around the corner got a good audio show. Cheers.

I imagine the hike down from Rockfellow was not the most pleasant. Kudo's to you and your wife for getting down on your own power. Something to be said for having a partner with enough knowledge.

thanks Bill - didn't realize that once the muscles tensed up around the dislocated joint it would hurt that much. Certainly memorable :) I posted a TR of this little misadventure on summitpost, summitpost.org/trip-report/354...
take care.

Damn, I'd be pretty bummed if I drove an hour and a half out to Cochise and then hiked an hour and then got injured..If I flew across the country to climb there for a couple of days and that happened on the first pitch of the first climb, I'd be clinically depressed for like a month..

Yeah 2 trips wasted (0 climbing) due to injuries. Once we drove (50 hrs r.t. from Portland) & this time we flew also for nothing but an ER visit. Cursed I guess. Did have our share of great climbing in Cochise and so that keeps us coming back :)
Great area - lucky you to live so close to it! cheers.
