There was an accident at NRG at Endless wall on Monday. I did not see the accident, but was there while the rescue crews raised the person in a litter and carried her out. I do not know for sure what happened, as I was not there. While several people waited around to see if we were needed to help carry the litter, we could hear a summary of what happened:

Sounds like a woman was leading Biohazard and fell near the 1st anchors. She apparently pulled gear and flipped upside-down, hitting her back and possibly her head. She may have momentarily lost consciousness. She seemed alert and responsive by the time she was raised to the top of the cliff.

Hope she is doing well and that there were no significant injuries.
