The heaviest of those showers Saturday morning hit as my mate was pulling the very last move onto the ledge at the end of the Orestes traverse. He thinks a foot slipped. Should have had a cam in the traverse, his last piece was a green cam at the top of the corner. I'd probably given him some slack as well for topping out. He had time to yell "take" about four times on the way down and ended up near the second bolt on the L wall, not too far above me. He hit the wall surprisingly gently, no damage done except to me when I was dragged across some rock. It was the biggest catch I've had to hold in 20 years. Next try, he fired in a good small cam half way across the traverse.
