worst near accidents I've seen 23-Sep-2010 At 12:32:49 PM ClimbingNT
My biggest near accident was when I was on a top rope and only realised how poorly it was set after I approached the top and preparing myself to take on the crux. Popped my head up over the overhang in an attempt to find the next hold, and saw that the rope had been looped over an old chain, that was secured to 2 bolts. What made it even more scary, was the fact that I was situated left of the anchor and out of sight of my belayer. If I fell it would have caused a massive pendulum, and possibly a rope failure.

Since then, I have always climbed with people who are constantly focused on safety....and understand how anchors are supposed to be set.
