yeah that belayer needs to pay better attention. he sounds like an incompetent asshole to me. i would know, i know him better than anyone else in the world...

yeah i think we all sort of disregarded proper rope management at the worst possible time. i don't think anyone can question the size of JT's yarbles after taking a fall like that and getting right back on the rock. Oct 24, 2007

JT aka Spiderman getting his leg solidly in front of the rope after being told not to for 6 months :-) Belayer was nappping or maybe thought he might cause a fall if he broke the climber's concentration, I was caught up in the photography from 50 feet away..And that is why you should wear a helmet, moments later he fell with just the tip of his foot in front of the rope and even that was enough to cause a 10 foot upside downer..Luckily unscathed..Although in fairness I will say it looks kind of hard not to get yourself in front of the rope in this spot..maybe just a do-not-fall situation Oct 22, 2007
