Weekend Whipper: "Did Your Harness Break?"

A little backyard sport climbing sounded like a good idea ... especially after a few (too many) drinks. But despite the meager height of this home-made climbing wall, this climber finds trouble. Near the top, as he backs down from a perplexing move, he whips ... and lands firmly on the ground. Although the belayer's first guess is that the climber's harness may have broken, this is not the case. Can you spot the ground-fall causing error? Comment below and let us know what really happened.

Looks like he wasn't even tied in.
Did he tie into his belt? Was he even wearing a belt? If he was, it was pretty loose. Easy to tie into.
I thought maybe he tied into his chalk bag webbing, but it looks like the chalk bag was just clipped to the harness.
