Agree: Fell on the flat wet rock 1/4 way up the hill two years ago with a guide pack on my back and a canoe on my shoulders. Came down on my elbow and it swelled up the size of a baseball. I got careless when I saw a guy with a solo kevlar canoe run up the hill in his trail shoes. No fracture, and plenty of cold water and ibuprofen finished the week.
