Not an artery, just a nick

When I reached the belay on Carotid Artery (WI6, 45 meters), Keith told me why he had stopped. A cut above his eyebrow bled so profusely that his glasses were covered in blood and he couldn't see until he found some running water to clean them with. It was worth it, he said.

Why not?

It was a sick climb, a good lead and he didn't die. That would make me smile.

Re: Why not?

Keith is a good guy, humble and way way underspoken. Which makes his choice of climbing partners rather amusing in this case, lol ;)
