I also add my best wishes for a speedy recovery to whoever the injured person is.

The Totem Pole is a notoriously dangerous route, with a number of climbers injured on the 65-metre-tall column over the years.

Yeah?
How come the climbing community hasn't heard of these?

Full value approach and exit, tick
Shedding rock (See Lynn Hill, Paul Pritchard, + ...), tick
Known Accidents (Paul, + ... ?), tick

Doesn't really seem too badly hyped (for a mainstream media report on climbing).

Best wishes to the latest accident victim for a good recovery.
