Cave Dog's Injured Toe

While scouting out a possible short cut on Eolus's Southeast Face at the end of July, Cave Dog's left big toe was crushed by a two foot long falling boulder.  He could not walk on it for nearly a week and was concerned it might prevent his challenging the record.  Fortunately, it turned out to not be broken; however, the toe would temporarily go numb during subsequent climbs.  Cave Dog lost all feeling in the toe during the challenge and for another three and half months.
