Far from the dream trip they had envisioned, Toni Lamprecht and climbing partner Benno Wagner travel from Germany to establish new routes in the remote Adamants Range of British Columbia. The resulting epic has a sobering lesson for all climbers.
Post Script: Benno Wagner was on the BMC International Meet in Wales this spring, and seemed to have made a full recovery. Well, he didn't have any trouble with classic hard routes like Conan the Librarian. Benno - all at UKC hope you healed well and wish you the best of luck on your future climbing trips!
