WARNING: PROFANITY AND GRAPHIC IMAGES
This accident occurred on Nov 6th 2011 in South East Wyoming on a first ascent of a previously unclimbed route (it's been climbed in the summer - never as an ice climb as far as we know).
I am posting the video as a reminder of how challenging self-rescue is when things go wrong on an alpine climb. Our climb was only two miles from the road, but a broken ankle made it feel much farther. I hope this video helps other climbers make wise choices about how they manage risk.
Oh...and, yes, that is a reference to Touching the Void.
