Weekend Whipper: Watch the Rope!

29-May-2014


Jenga is popular 5.10a at the Birdsboro Quarry in Pennsylvania. The route is steep and featured with dinner-plate jugs protruding from a corner like the wooden blocks of the climb's namesake game. However, when leading through this type of steep terrain, it's important to watch your rope, as this Weekend Whipper demonstrates. While this climber employs several backsteps in order to correctly position her hips closer to the steep wall, she forgets to manage her rope, which continually runs along the back of one leg. Eventually, the climber loses her feet and takes a fall, and the rope catches her leg and flips her upside-down. Luckily, she was wearing a helmet!
