The photos open ok on iPhone
Nasty incident and I do hope the injured party recovers well and gets back confidently in rock- best wishes!

I was involved in a similar experience at Frog In 1979 when my partner, leading iron mandible, pulled out a hex he was testing- suddenly found himself about 2ft out from the rock ; then splat!
Fortunately the ground there is soft, he landed on his side had a gashed hand, broken cheek bone bruising but otherwise ok. Just the 2 of us at Frog that day so a slow stagger out and trip to Boonah hospital where he got cleaned up, Iím not sure he climbed again.
