It was a guy named Joe from Ontario who came down by himself and just hooked up with whomever he could find to climb. He fell while on lead and decked...maybe Awol??? Not sure about the route. Not sure how high up he was but the people at the scene said he was talking and having a conversation. He ended up with about 12 stitches and possible concussion.

That is all I know.

I've seen many falls on AWOL that resulted in someone lightly touching the ground or hovering about one foot from the ground.

That's probably why the sherif was there. Checking for his papers.

I'm cool...I had to make like I was a Canadian to save face. It's hard being by yourself and looking for belay victims at roadside....

Eh? :?
What I love about running is you can meditate while running. It's a peaceful place.

This is John May (member of the Wolfe County SAR team). We were asked to respond to this incident. The man that fell was not actually rock climbing as originally reported. He was walking the trail at the bottom of the cliff, slipped and hit his head. The 911 call reported that a climber had fallen 15-20ft which was not the case. The WC SAR team would also like to thank all of the climbers that volunteered helping us evac this person to the awaiting ambulance.
