That’s how Jordan McConnell described to us what happened before this whipper he took on Course and Buggy in J-Tree, back on February 24.

“I was getting kind of leg pumped,” he said, “and so I didn’t place my last .1 z4 very well, so when I fell that thing popped right out.

He went on, “The fall looks bad but I was about 4 feet from decking. Hoping to send that route next time I’m in J Tree.”

We  prefer a bit more room than four feet from the ground to feel we had a solid safety margin, but hey, we weren’t there, and sounds like all worked out in the end.

Happy Friday and whenever this coronavirus stuff is a thing of the past—and one day it will be—climb safe out there!
