Glad you are back in the ring John.

When I destroyed my knee in '86 my doctor told me my riding days were over.
Two years later I earned number one division plate in open class desert racing.
As strong as you are, I think you will continue following your passions sooner than later. Best of luck!

John, if it is any consolation the entire climbing world are now checking their tie-in a little more thoroughly. Might even stop someone else hurting themselve ... for the next six months or so.

We have an obscure climb in Tucson called Roped Joke named for yet another botched tie-in.

Don't end up as a Roped Joke folks! Check your knot on an ongoing basis especially in the gym where distraction abounds.

Even Angel Wings Hill kissed the ground not so long ago.

Really great shot(s) of you and Lynne, made me all misty eyed.

Sooooo glad you are *out*.

Hope you get some good writing time in.

That picture of Lynn and John is kind of ironic. Both took long falls due to pilot error, lived to tell the tale, and are the poster children for checking the knot.
A reminder to play safe.
Plus Donini's recent incident with the rap sling. Kind of makes you want to trust your instinct and throw in a backup. I know of 2 incidents in the Cdn Rockies where very experienced climbers put in a backup to the belay anchors as an afterthought only to have the main belay fail and saved by the backup.

Now that's a frame-able picture, good luck with the recovery John.
