ElCap report 5/18/07

Yo... well today was a lot quieter than yesterday!!  I went over to the SAR cache this morning and gave the many shots I took to John Dill... Keith Lober showed up as did Merry Braun and we all sat around looking at some of them on the computer and talking about the rescue... I said I wanted to shake the hand of the man who lowered into that situation from a chopper hovering just a few feet from the wall. Great work Keith and Jack!!  Nice day today with some action starting on different routes.

BIG RESCUE ON THE CAP TODAY. A guy fell from the pitch above the king swing and broke his femur with gallons of blood on eagle ledge. I called it in around 9:30 am and told 911 to get some one here fast as the guy was bleeding to death. He was on Eagle ledge with his partner who was doing everything he could to keep him alive... never seen such an amount of blood... the ledge was streaming with it. Anyway ... 3 choppers showed up and the full SAR rescue team arrived after a time.

This report is an idea I had that resulted from so many people asking me "What is going on ElCap these days?"  I figure that with the internet and such a lot of people would like to know too.  So I am going to try to write some of what I see ... I will post these reports on SuperTopo and we will see what comes of it....

Ok... the Cap is pretty empty in great weather..

 

Nose... one party on El Cap tower another fixed to sickle and that’s it.
