Steve House, one of the top climbers in the world and a highly visible Patagonia Ambassador, suffered severe injuries while climbing in the Canadian Rockies, and had to be airlifted to a hospital to receive treatment for a number of life threatening issues.
According to this story from Adventure Travel News, House fell more than 80 feet while making an ascent of Mt. Temple in Banff National Park. He was immediately evacuated to Calgary, and has since been flown home to Oregon, where treatment continues.
Everyone keep Steve and his friends and family in your thoughts while he focuses on his recovery. Details are a bit scare yet, but it seems he’s not quite out of the woods. Lets hope it all goes well.
