Only ten years behind the times! Not exactly latest news. The comments on the YouTube link continue to keep me amused. That was my first ever (and last) tricam placement.

Looks like his face got bashed in really badly. Horribly disfigured.

Out of curiosity, it looks like you grabbed the draw - is that what you think pulled the gear?

Maybe - i think mainly it was a crap Tricam that slipped through a weird hollow in the rock. I placed it blindly from below - thought it was bomber (big mistake) but when I fell it just came straight out. There was a wire below it which I knew was crap - I wasn't surprised when that one failed!

So what you are saying is that you had 'No Idea' about climbing safely!
Was it this incident that made you decide to become a ''RingBolt Safety Expert"?

Yep - That just about sums it up . . . .

As the old saying goes ' A poor tradesman blames their tools . . ."

And yes it does seem strange that he should later assume a position of 'Safety Authority' . . . ? ? ?
