In May 2015, Erik sustained a severe fall while canyoneering—his anchor blew when he was suspended on a 50 ft. overhang. He shattered both heels and ankles, sustained an open compound fracture to his right tib & fib. Through the heroic efforts of his canyoneering partner and best friend (Kyle DeVolder), and a massive tri-county rescue operation, Erik was airlifted to Kern County Medical Center in critical condition and going into renal failure.

“Out of the night that covers me, black as the Pit from pole to pole, I thank whatever gods may be for my unconquerable soul.“
