Climber Makes Full Recovery After Fall

Middle Teton

A little over a year ago, a climber form Texas slipped and fell 12-hundred feet while decending Ellingwood Couloir on the south side of the Middle Teton in Grand Teton National Park.  Now the 21-year-old has not only recovered, but doing some rather challenging physical activity again.  Ryan Haymaker of Houston had fractured his femur, a patella, his pelvis and three vertebrae, collapsed both lungs and sustained major head trauma – and was in a coma for 18 days.  After his fall, he was flown directly by Air Idaho Life Flight to the Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center in Idaho Falls, Idaho where he was listed in guarded condition. This autumn, however, Haymaker is back at school; he’s biking and is hoping to snowboard this winter.  He also says he intends to return to Jackson Hole one day.

  • Be ready for bumps, scrapes, cuts and more - October 30, 2014
    Being prepared for the worst is never a bad idea. However, if you carry everything you might need for any emergency, you won’t have room for your tent or sleeping bag. A first aid kit needs to be light and compact, or it’ll be one of the first things you toss out of the pack […]
