Just broke my knee cap in a big whipping lead fall. Came in with my knee instead of my foot. I had just been convincing myself that big lead falls are safe! Anyone ever had this happen? Advice? alison

Yikes. I've never heard of that before, but I can easily imagine how it could happen. Did your belayer give you a hard catch? JCM
