Who needs a hospital to reattach your thumb when all you need is an 80-foot fall to do it.

Been on supertopo for days and I haven't seen a mention of the death on the NW face of Half Dome here either.

Even the taco (last I looked - yesterday) hasn't got wound up about the "jumar off the rope/80 foot fall/broken leg" on the column or the recent incident at the Cathedrals. the e-world will never match the real world.

true, except sometimes those from the real world just can't talk about it in eworld. Their detail is under investigation
