Castleton Fall

While climbing Castleton Tower, Brendan Leonard watched a climber cruise past him, take on a piece of gear, and then fall onto a ledge right at his feet.

But the image of what he saw lingered long after the ambulance left the parking lot, and had him questioning his own climbing motivations.
