so… I broke my leg

A lot of you know this by now because of social media, but I broke my leg during my climbing trip in Joshua Tree. I’ll spare you the gory details, but I had surgery and now I’m laid up in a hospital bed with lots of ice packs, tubes, and a sweet air cast. Not sure when I’ll get to go home, but I wanted to leave you guys a note so you didn’t think I’d disappeared!

I hope to be back to our normal post schedule as soon as possible.
