It is with great sadness that I have to report that Rob ("Rhyang") was in a very bad car accident last Thursday night while driving to go climbing. We visited him today (Saturday) at the hospital and he is pretty banged up but is in stable condition. I know Rob has many friends and acquaintances here at SummitPost and he wanted me to explain his absence. (I believe he also had arranged to meet someone from SP in Tuolumne Meadows on Friday to climb -- obviously he was unable to contact that person.) Please join me in sending positive thoughts his direction during a very dark time.
If you are a friend of Rob's and would like more information, please go ahead and send me a PM.
