Fortunately, I'd just asked my partner to move slightly to the left out of my fall line. Not a moment too soon it seems, as the block I was standing on parted company with the rest of the route to land at Derek's feet. A close call, our closest yet I would say. Amazingly I managed to stay on the rock, but didn't have the heart to continue.
