I heard from a friend this morning about his accident. I don't know Rob, but it's hard to miss him anytime you're on SummitPost. Sometimes life throws you some major hurdles and it seems he has had more than his share. My heart goes out to him and I hope he quickly heals with full mobility.

We were headed to Tioga to climb Dana Couloir on Friday, when Tina called to tell us the news. Both Deb and I went numb....only hearing just a bit of this dark news. Don't know what to tell you what was going on in my head! :cry:

Anyway, here's to a speedy recovery and loads of heartfelt well wishing Rob! Chin up brother!!

Hang in their Rob. I fully expect you to be back on the mountains leading bigger, badder routes. I'm sending positive vibes your way. Take care and I"ll see you soon.

Hey Rob,
This sucks but I'm sure you'll be back sooner than you think. Keep those tools sharp. Canmore's a-calling!

Sorry you're faced with another set-back Rob; I can't imagine how frustrating and scarey your days have been. Although having never met you, I do enjoy and applaud your constant energy on SP; hope that we can do an ice climb together sometime. BUT for now, relax! Take some time to yourself - you deserve it. :D
Wishing you a constant and progressive recovery - physically AND emotionally.

I spent about an hour with Rob today. He seems to be doing much better than when I saw him yesterday. He said they had him sit up for a bit and had his feet touch the floor and it hurt a bit, but he didi it. "Damn Physical therapists" was his remark. :lol: He will be moving to the Bay Area later this week, not sure exactly when. I will see him again tomorrow.
