Weekend Whipper: Bad Clipping Technique Causes BIG Fall

This beginner climber learns a tough lesson. While several feet out from his last bolt, he starts to pump out with the next quickdraw right in front of his face. The seemingly attainable safety is too enticing for the climber and he tries to clip his rope through the taunting biner. But his poor technique and deep pump lead to a chicken-winged, draw-grabbing attempt with lots of slack in his hand ... and he ultimately pays the price.

Looks like a fun fall... Next time if you're gonna end up weighting gear, you might as well move up or chain draws to go in-direct to get a real rest since the send is over at that point anyway. Stay safe...
