I just saw a post over on r/climbing that John Long decked and shattered his ankle at a gym last night. Anyone have anymore detail? The guy is a damn legend. I hope everything turns out ok.

Wow, I hope that's not true. That's also not easy to do at a gym these days.

John has been known to climb at Rockreation in WLA. Doesn't Fluoride work for them? Maybe she knows.

It would appear that he did in fact injure himself at the Gym, he's resting at the moment and I'm sure he'll tell us all about it soon. . .df

If John got hurt, doing it at the gym would be about right.

I just got off the DL after nine months. I fell off the top of the boulder at our climbing gym, When I think of some of the highball falls I took while bouldering in the ancient days before pads, I'm still amazed that the only time I hurt myself bouldering was falling less than eight feet, feet-first, onto pads.

If you really are hurt, Largo, best wishes for a speedy and complete recovery.
