Tommy Caldwell Injured, Off Dawn Wall Project

Tommy Caldwell, writing on The Facebook:

Disaster strikes! Haul bag took a 200 plunge while clipped to the back of my harness. Hauling hook fail. It was a bit jarring. Looks like a costochondral seperation. I am headed home to try and heal as quickly as possable.

Best of luck to Tommy as he recovers.  What this means for the 2013 effort on the Dawn Wall is unclear, but between the 16 day government shutdown and this, the odds of the route going this year don’t look real great from here.
