Andy's Reminder

Flagstaff climber Albert Newman writes: "My buddy Andy Morrow took a real nasty traversing fall out at the Overlook about six years ago, and unfortunately the rope was also behind his leg, causing him to flip into a 40-foot swan dive. Anyway, his titanium (skull) insert became infected in January and had to be taken out for 4 months. Nine days ago, they put his skull back together in Phoenix. He was home the next evening. When I took this photo, he said he wanted to remind all those climbers out there to wear a helmet."
