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.
