The PIG Hand

Tass breaks her hand in a bicycle crash along the California coast Feb 2004.
We jokingly call her bruised, swollen hand The Pig Hand.
One week later we spend a week climbing at Joshua Tree. A doctor friend mails us extra cast material to make her a special climbing cast.
Bruce tapes two little metal prongs on the cast which Tass uses for balance. We call her "The Claw."

Tass proceeds to stun our group by climbing some impressive routes virtually one-handed.
One last picture of The Claw belaying. Nothing can stop her.
