Tim Murray takes the plunge on Liger (7a/5.11d), Koh Lao Liang, Thailand.

“I had just got past the crux … but I was completely pumped and had no juice in my arms to clip,” he tells Rock and Ice. “I decided to go for
a nice looking jug and didn’t make it.”

Murray caught his left leg behind the rope, which flipped him in the fall.

“I had always been told ‘always put your leg around the rope, and never get your leg behind the rope’ and I thought I was doing that correctly,” he says.
“But having studied the video and read up more, I’ve realized as this was a big traverse and the bolt was far on the left the rope should have been
OVER my thigh.

“Anyway, lesson learned without harm done. Amazingly the fall didn’t even really hurt and I wasn’t even bruised!”

Happy Friday and stay safe out there this weekend.
