Abraham lowered him 500 feet to the Grey Bands.

YOSAR hauled him to the summit, spent the night there.

Being flown to Valley right now.

One broken leg for sure....possibly the other.

Only Hans could handle this with such aplomb.

Not sure about that, but all the best to him, hope it's not too serious.

Its not a big deal but I'm a bit confused. I saw a video from his partner this am on facebook that said he was on dolt, but one of the posts above said they were on grey ledges. Were they on the nose or some other route? Anyone know what happened?

Either way best wishes to Hans on a speedy recovery!
