And no helmet, ouch. Hope it wasn't a bad smack. I've done that once but thankfully had my helmet on.

He didn't hit his head, but it wasn't a pretty fall either.

I come around the corner and see him fighting the hand jams. I look at his belayer who looks back at me with a smile. I ask Austin if he knows the grade of the route he's climbing, he says his belayer told him 5.9ish. I look at his belayer who continues to smile, shrugs his shoulders and says, "5.9ish or maybe 5.10ish."

I smile and quickly unpack my camera.
