Topic - Helmets and sport climbing

Ron Walker - on 21 Oct 2013
I know it's uncool to wear a helmet Sport Climbing or Cragging, but a really nasty fall at 1.06 and the kind likely to cause serious rope burn and head injuries?

Falling with the rope around the back of your legs is quite common and invariable spins and flips you upside down, with your head taking most of the impact...

I had a similar unexpected fall years ago and ever since have always worn a helmet!
