  15. 15. Tom Rogers: “I was about 30 ft below her.  She was attempting to change direction and lost her footing.  She started falling head first, her crampons rotating counterclockwise, away from the right wall.  I’m pretty sure she slammed her right fist onto the rock, knocking her ice axe loose and rupturing the ring finger tendon.  I saw her coming down and watched her crampons; that’s how I know her feet were above her head.  I took a step to the right, braced, and was able to hold on when she hit me.  When I caught her she was sliding pretty fast and unable to self-arrest.
