Accident Report

On Saturday May 27, Bob Patey was climbing a first ascent in CBS. He took a relatively short fall and was caught on his first and only piece of pro. Unfortunately his foot hit a ledge prior to his fall being arrested. He has suffered a fractured ankle and is recovering.

Lesson: on low angle climbs watch for ledges that may case danger in a fall.
