Caitlin Bell discovers the trickery of the R-rated slab climb James Bond de Bayonne (6c+ 5.11c) in Ailefroide, France. Unable to clip, she presses
on, though not without fair warning to her belayer.
“Be Ready For A Whipper, Eh?” She says.
Unfortunately, Bell’s prediction came true and she careened into the ledge below.
“Don’t know how bad it is yet,” She tells Rock and Ice, referring to her ankle. “Seeing a specialist at the end of the week. Doesn’t seem to hurt too much
so fingers crossed, not looking forward to trying to walk on it though!”
Wish Caitlin a speedy recovery and be safe out there this weekend!
