Weekend Whipper: Backslapping Groundfall
If climbing a chossy highball beach-block in California ever seems like a good idea, then watch this Weekend Whipper. As a woman slowly climbs to a height of roughly 17 feet, her friend captures on film the worst possible scenario: a crumbling hold. With nothing but sand to break the fall, this climber takes a punishing plummet. She lived to tell the tale and posted this video. "Lessons learned: - use a crash pad always - knock on holds before you hold on to them - use a spotter."
