Attacked by Hornets in the Ghost River, Jumped Off a Cliff to Get Away!

Our plans to climb Booty Loader (5.12c) in the ghost were thwarted when i sauntered onto a ground nest of hideously aggressive hornets, to which i am allergic. one of the bastards mauled me so i dove down a very steep talus embankment, tumbling a good 50 meters with five or six of the beasts in hot pursuit. Got pretty mangled on the talus in shorts and sandals, but still managed to immediately go onsight 5.11+. Injuries seem to be bruised ribs, couple deep lacerations, twisted ankle and bone fracture. can still climb hard but cant hike for shit!
