East from the shoulder of the East Peak of Mt. Tamalpais
I was about to drop down this 1,200' ridge. Half way down I slipped on a wet boulder and snapped my thumb at the upper joint. Holding it in place against my fingers I continued on down another mile in a state of mild shock and spent the rest of the afternoon and early evening lounging in the local ER. Going home, fractured thumb sewn up in a splint. I was out hiking next day. Even though it looked bloody and dramatic there was very little pain involved. January '10

The thumb situation, not the pic. The pic is great. I broke a finger in a similar fashion on Mt Whitney a few years back and also spent the afternoon in the ER room in Lone Pine. It does put a damper on things but isn't a stopper.

You're right Dean. A toe would be another matter!
