Oh shit that had to suck...his leg was behind the rope too. How did he get turned that way?

Wow, great action photo, but it doesn't look like a happy ending is in sight. Although the helmet needs to get out of the way and protect itself or do a better job of spotting.

I have a similar pic of Barbie out climbing with Mandy Moore back about 10 years ago. Wicked face climb!

It's ironic that he is staring at/in the direction of the helmet that is hanging there… When ever you take a helmet, why not wear it…

Perhaps the helmet was the belayer's?

Or maybe he spun around on purpose to try and put his helmet on while falling? Makes more sense than a lot of things in this picture.

If you look closely, it looks like the rope is between his leg and the rock. I think it just lines up with the line his rolled-up pants makes. Hmmm.
