Forgive me if this has made the rounds before, but this looks like a legitimate Factor 2 fall right on the anchor in an actual real world climbing scenario. You can even see the anchor "stretch" a bit right after the fall.

Pretty scary stuff!

I saw the faller kinda roll his head over and you can tell he's not 100% limp by the way he's laying I think.

I think I see three pieces. One might be a pin, I think.
Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
