In reply to Diggler: Thanks for all the nice comments. To answer your question I either down climb or if that's not possible (or I fall off) I aim to land flat with my legs out straight on my butt!! (Doesn't always work but I've never had an issue).

This reminds me of a lady at Leeds Wall who climbs with a prosthetic leg! Great work and I hope you know how much your success must motivate others with a disability!
