New helmet required! Tuesday, 5 February 2013 At 11:21:17 PM salty crag

Have to admit I'm a tad slack sometimes when it comes to headwear but luckily for me I had a stack hat on the other night.

Had to use a bit of aid climbing to traverse a very steep section of the cliff to reach the next drilling position, had a sling over a seemingly solid jutting out piece of rock (both of us checked it out and classed it as bomber). Just about to commence drilling when I momentarily blacked out and came too swinging through the air. For a moment I couldn't work out what had happened. 30kg of rock had dislodged hitting me on the head and missing my buddy by .5m.

Got a broken (shattered) climbing helmet, a headache and a sore neck and I reckon I'm very lucky!! Mate (a paramedic) checked me out and we finished bolting the climb.

This was 5 days ago. I'm still to sore to climb and mongrel mate just rang to let me know he sent the climb with 2 others. Never again will I climb without a helmet, rock hardware here I come.
