In the recent edition of Pitch, we mentioned John Harlin’s expedition. As it turns out, John was evacuated about a month ago.

Arlene Burns sent us the following note:

john harlin fell 9 days into his swiss borderline hike/climb, was very lucky to live but broke both feet and was helicopter evacuated from the face (about a month ago)

he intends to continue the journey next year (if his wife lets him!)
