GlebeChris - thanks very much for the comprehensive report - very useful, very interesting, really appreciate you taking the time to write that up.

I'm so sorry to hear your injuries are so severe. You sound like a smart person with good people around you and a great attitude, so I'm sure you'll make the best of it - I wish you all the best in your recovery / rehab.

It is really sobering to read the details of the accident and your summary of the likely causes. In a nutshell, skinny near new rope, a lot of rope out for a blown clip, possible inattention/loss of focus, possible rope not seated in Reverso v-slots, belayer unable to slow the fall significantly. And this is a pretty experienced person you climbed with a lot. Wow. Time to do a lot more catching practise with my partner to make sure we are on top of things...

Keep on mending, I hope to see you on that top rope soon :-)
