The description from the YouTube page reads: “This was about 7 years ago in my 1st year of climbing. I made the novice mistake of underestimating a climb I knew nothing about. Used very bad technique and failed to clip the draw after pulling 2 ft of slack and the belayer feeding the same. Thank you to my ex-gf (the belayer) for doing everything to bring in the slack and ultimately suffered some serious rope burn on her hands. She saved me from broken bones. After shaking the experience off, I finished the climb and walked home with a huge lesson learned.”

Happy Friday and climb safe this weekend!
