The singularly most dangerous thing ... 3-Nov-2005 At 10:00:06 PM steph
My story might be a little confusing but basically leading indoors is the setting... At the top I clipped the SAFETY sling into the rope instead of my harness by mistake and promptly called "safe" to my belayer. As I was being taken off belay, I noticed my weight wasn't exactly what you'd call statically balanced and I realised quick smart what I'd done.

Needless to say, had i been taken off belay immediately or had I just not noticed the rope movement in time, I would have had a very interesting ground fall :(

So now I'm abnormally paranoid about clipping, belay stations and being 150% sure of things, which will probably one day save my life :P
