Spencer is up and walking 8 days after the accident. He even tried walking up and down a couple stairs! If he can get his pain under control, he is hoping to head home in the next couple days and start therapy. Just in time for Thanksgiving.
If you are in Iowa City tonight, some of Spencer’s fellow climbers are hosting an event at Orchard Green from 7:30 to 10:30. Stop by if you are around to grab a drink. Proceeds will be donated to the The Access Fund in Spencer’s honor.
The Access Fund is the national advocacy organization that keeps U.S. climbing areas open and conserves the climbing environment. Founded in 1991, the Access Fund supports and represents over 2.3 million climbers nationwide in all forms of climbing: rock, ice, mountaineering, and bouldering.
