hmm, not sure where to start with this one.  an instructor for 6 years, falls on a 9, with the rope behind his leg.  in the immortal words of past leadership "what is our children learning?"

That guy teaches at my gym. So glad he made it to the big leagues!

I took him sport climbing once, and he told me two quickdraws were not an appropriate anchor to lower off two bolts.

Hey man, he ALMOST made it. Isnt that close enough? And does he not have a sick ass story to tell the kids about his riveting adventure?

I loved the slo-mo coaching "Watch your left leg" So he got flipped upside down and didn't even hit his helmeted head.

Who ever says you can't use the rope as a thong was wrong.

I think this is deserving of a demotion to a front desk position.

If I were in this guy's place, and a friend was videotaping me, the first thing I would have done, upon coming down, would be making sure the video of this debacle doesn't go anywhere near RockandIce weekend whipper...
