John Long Seriously Injured in Fall

Climbing's best-known author, pioneer and original Stonemaster, John Long was seriously injured on November 29 at the Rockreation climbing gym in Los Angeles when his bowline came untied and he fell to the floor...
Long attributes the accident to pilot error, forgetting to finish his knot "I screwed up big," he says.
