In October 2012, I became part of a rescue on Castleton Tower near Moab when a college student named Peter fell and landed on a belay ledge from about 20 feet above. I wrote a post about it on Semi-Rad, A Climbing Accident, which became one of the most-viewed posts ever on this site.
Since the initial story was posted on Semi-Rad, I’ve caught up with Peter in person, and returned to climbing myself, with a bit different take on risk and consequences.
Over the past few weeks, I’ve worked with Becca Cahall at The Dirtbag Diaries to turn the original story — and its aftereffects — into a Short for the podcast. The 11-minute episode went live late last week. If you’d like to listen to it, click here.
