Injury at Spurt Wall 29-Apr-2015 At 1:24:20 PM harold
An article from rock and ice on soft catches. Of course if you're worried about the climber decking it might not be possible, but soft catch is pretty essential to avoid smashing ankles.
Compare Dave Mcleoud's ankle smashing whipper on Rhapsody with a fairly static belay, and then subsequent repeats taking the same whip but with soft catch and their belayors getting launched up.
The worst combination is pushing away from the wall as you fall and then a heavy belayor locking off tight on a gri gri.
