climbing fall, Sickle Ledge : LUSENET : Mountaineering : One Thread

How do I get info on a climbing fall that took place Friday, June 4th on Sickle Ledge on El Capitan, the Nose Route. Two helicoptors and a dozen S&R people were involved in the operation. I'd like to know what happened and how the guy is!

What I heard from people as I was walking up to a route was that he fell out of the stove legs crack. They thought he might have hurt his neck and back so they didn't want to move him. That is all I know. Ronnie
