The RMRU team enjoyed a long day of technical rock training in Pine Cove on this Saturday. At 4:00pm, as the team was carrying out two mock high angle raises, word came that a climber had fallen on Suicide Rock. The team immediately broke off the training and proceeded to the trailhead. Shortly after arriving the injured climber emerged under his own power with superficial head lacerations. Medical aid was provided, and the subject departed in the care of his climbing partners.
