Climbing Fall – Huntington Ravine

A climber fell at the top of the 2nd bulge in Damnation Gully, Huntington Ravine. Upon placing both tools in hard snow and weighting them, both axes pulled out. The climber fell about 30 feet, half way through the fall the climber hit a ledge landing directly on his foot and rolling his ankle, suffering a sprain. He and his partner self-rescued to the Harvard Cabin where they spent the night. The next morning they were transported to Pinkham in the USFS snowcat.
