I understand a climber fell 300' to his death late today - somewhere near the Awahanee. I don't have any other details.
Has anyone heard more details about this?

I called in a fall but I can't confirm anything. Keep the climbers on Serenity Crack today in your thoughts tonight. I am.

..as do mine, I have a lot of friends in the valley climbing right now, it's a bad feeling not knowing.

Any links to a news story or details yet?

I don't like this at all. I am selfishly hoping it is not someone I know even though any loss known or unknown is a huge tragedy. My condolences...

Man this is terrible news.

Word is it was a rapping accident. Rapping a single line with a pull cord. Knot pulled through the anchor.

Condolences to the family and friends.

Was someone soloing? That's a pretty big whipper.



*edit* Oh missed the post about the rappelling. What a bummer.
