/ This chap was lucky
at least the gear held! What's the route?
Why is he carrying all that gear?!
This one is a common and popular gritstone plummet.
If he anticipated the likely outcome then all credit to him for giving it a go. The gear is bomber and the fall is clean- go for it!
Lucky his belayer had a helmet on!
One of the most fallen off moves on grit, not really lucky, just average really.
That would have killed him.
It says in the description " Well worth attempting as a true ground-up, on-sight" Why on earth would anyone top rope this first?
Regarding the OP - that top move can't have been easy with 37 kilos of useless gear wrapped round his waist ;-)
