Leave it to your buddy to ask, “You going up, or coming down?” after you wreck yourself in a fall.

For this week’s Weekend Whipper, this climber gets spit off the crux of Black Magic Woman (5.11a) at the Black Rose wall of Rock Canyon, Utah.

To give the belayer credit, though, he did exclaim, “Holy shit,” and then ask, “Are you all right?” before, and without waiting for an answer, getting
to the business question.

Happy Friday and look after your friends this weekend!
