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.
