A collection of dubious top rope climbing anchors.
Saturday, March 25, 2017
An adult borrowed someone's climbing rig, setting up his kid to belay with an ATC. The kid didn't understand what that meant. The rope's owner offered to belay, or back the kid up, but the adult declined. When he fell he went straight to the ground. He had open fractures of the Tibia and Fibula, a severely dislocated ankle, and an injury to one arm. On the plus side, for the rest of his life, he will probably know when it is going to rain.
