What was the final word on this? Was this a medical issue that caused his death?

Just curious.

Ditto. Lloyd had posted this a couple years back, I'd never heard of anything and it had stuck in my melon.Without belaboring the tale, by pulling an overhang that was difficult for me, I cracked a vertebra between my shoulder blades. Never heard of that to avoid it, or to know that's what had happened until days later going to an emergency room.

Contributing factor must be my age, which may have been a case of osteoporosis also unknown to me to avoid in such case. I think now that sixty should be considered a general time to give it up, no matter how much older someone out there is still at it. I didn't start until being covered by Medicaid, and now a lot more than climbing is over.
