This is a absolute classic route. However, in the interest of accident reporting I should report the following:

On Monday: My climbing parters foot slip while reaching for the 5th bolt. She fell about 10 feet hurting her ankle. I lowered her, treated her ankle for possible fracture then lead and cleaned the route.

After cleaning the route, I walked to the power station and asked the workers for help, they allowed me to drive my truck down the road and pick her up. After exiting the gorge we drove to EMS.

Looking forward to going back.
