FALL ON ROCK, NO PROTECTION

Alberta, Rocky Mountains, Grotto Creek

On May 20, 1990, W.M. fell while climbing on Grotto Slabs, sustaining cuts, scrapes, and bruises to his left hand, right thigh, and the right side of his rib cage. He continued climbing for a while, before leaving with his companions to see whether a cut in his hand needed stitching. (Source: George Field, Alpine Specialist, Peter Lougheed Provincial Park)
