Kyle Walker was in Boulder, Colorado spending his day scrambling — no, not eggs — the specific type of rock climbing. While on the second flatiron, he slipped and fell 60 feet, breaking his hip, eight ribs, both hands, and puncturing a lung. He wasn't wearing any gear at the time of the fall, so it's amazing that he made it out with his life. Kyle is joining RTM via Skype to tell us more about his story and how he's recovering.

Swimming This Close To A Whale Is A Once-In-A-Lifetime Experience
