Whipper of the Week

How lucky was this guy? In late July, Dow Williams fell approximately 40 meters when a foothold crumbled on the West Face of the Watch Tower in the Canadian Rockies. He ripped several pieces, plungely past the belay, and barely missed a couple of ledges, coming to a stop about 10 meters above the base of the route. He was not seriously injured. Read his account here.
