Bummer x10000

Bummer x10000

The bad news seems to keep coming these days.  My favorite V15 climber in the world, Paul Robinson, has unfortunately had his dream trip to Europe cut short.  Apparently Paul fell while attempting to send The Never Ending Story (V14) in Magic Wood, Switzerland and broke his tibia!  Check out Ryan Sewell’s blog for the details.  Best wishes for a speedy recovery to Paul!  I’m sure that this will only be a temporary setback before rock crushing resumes.

As for Mrs. Narc’s busted ankle, she will unfortunately require surgery to repair her shattered talus.  She wanted me to let everyone know that she appreciates all the words of support, both offline and online. We are hoping for a quick recovery so that she too can return to the rock crushing!

    Oh man. That sucks like a big fat EF5. I hope the surgery goes smoothly and you’re back on the rock in no time, Mrs. Narc!!
