Topic - Returning after an accident

anomm - on 19 Feb 2013
Almost six months ago I was seconding my first ever multi-pitch route. However there was a major rockfall which hit us. Had to be airlifted of and toe amputated as a result. This was obviously a pretty big deal and not what a sixteen year old was expecting in his first ever multipitch!

I'm only just starting to get back into it with indoor climbing and recently setting up top ropes at my local crag. However its made a pretty huge dent in my confidence. I'm going to only do one pitch routes for the foreseeable future and was wondering if anyone had any tips on how to get back into trad -as to be honest im too scared to at the moment. Now that I know how easily things can go wrong its hard to take the plunge.

There must be some other people that have had problems getting back into it mentally.

Cheers
