Second Chance

In September of 2016, HippyTree climber and tribesman Isamer Bilog was bouldering at a spot called Tramway in the San Jacinto Mountains above Palm Springs. He took a horrific fall towards the end of the day and had to be airlifted from a remote location. Isamer broke multiple ribs, had severe brain swelling and received over 50 staples in his head. After years of recovery Isamer returned to Tramway to recount his experience and visit the boulder that almost killed him.
