I feel the butt pucker on this one. Bummer about Natasha's finger.

Even when most of the rock is good, you may find a bad rock that comes down.

I second Josh. Not far from where this photo was taken, my partner dislodged a small rock which landed precisely on my index finger. I ended up with a fractured distal phalange and some deep abrasions, which made down-climbing the north face a bit unnerving.

That being said, it's some of the most solid rock I've climbed to date. And despite the scare, I wouldn't hesitate to go back for the South Twin. :)
