How many time have you hit the ground falling off 1-Mar-2012 At 9:03:59 AM climbau
Three times a lady!
Twice off the same route at Nowra - my belayer blamed poor bolting. After the first deck out I passed the sharp end to him to give me time to gather my courage for a second shot. As it happens he fell off at the same place and I kept him off the ground, he lowered and jumped straight back on yo-yo style. He fell again at the same spot, but this time with an arm full of slack, I kept him off the ground again by stepping back and squatting down.
He then handed the sharp end back to me, I fell again at the same place and hit the deck. He still blamed stupid bolting despite not hitting the ground himself having fallen twice at the same place???? Go figure, there's just no learning for some people. Needless to say, we moved on to other routes that day and I climbed little with that person after that.

The third ground fall was off a short route near Beechworth after a cam busted out of a friable placement. I decided to move on and climb something else.
