near death experiences (well, falling..) 25-Mar-2015 At 9:19:37 PM salty crag
Near death experience. Had a few climbing, not me but grabbed a buddy's harness as he stepped over the edge to rapp down totally forgetting we were set to dual rapp and i was yet to clip in. Had a grounder at Araps last year climbing seemingly in control when my belayer informed me that I was at the crux and if I fell it would be a grounder - promptly fell, it hurt but no injuries. Had a couple of times when surfing heavy shit been held under so long you lose the urge to fight for breath and everything slows down, loss of peripheral vision (small tunnel of light only) and everything feels calm and serene. Little voice in the head has informed me each time that I'm in deep shit but been lucky.
