That scenario was mentioned in Paul Pritchard book when a rock took him out on the totem pole, in that they reckon if he had a helmet on the impact energy would have be referred to his neck etc and he would have actually died. Helmets are for small impacts & minor rock fall, anything big your stuffed either way..only so much a helmet can do.....but considering most impacts are in the smaller end of the scale they are worth it. Just last week a hold I was pulling on above my head, the size of a football came off, and bounced off the helmet... resulted in a bit of a laugh instead a split skull.
