Eddy Yahoo sent us this Whipper of his buddy Graeme Dick going for it on the crux of Milupa (29/5.13b) in the Grampians, Australia.

The move, Eddy told Rock and Ice, “is a notorious leap of faith which requires strong control of your momentum with potentially nasty consequences if you lose it.”

Seems Graeme lost it.

“It’s a pretty brutal fall,” Eddy wrote, “but Graeme only copped a bruised arse for his troubles… hopefully you’ll get as much amusement from it as we have.”

Look closely and you’ll even see crumbling rock from Graeme’s point of impact, showing how hard he hit. As Eddy said, “Lucky it wasn’t his head!” On that note Eddy suggested a hashtag that we can all get behind: #wearabloodyhelmetforchristsakes

Happy Friday and climb safe this weekend!
