Sounds very painful, a broken helmet....
Hope the recovery time is short and there are no lasting scars!

Hmmm, took me a moment to work that out. Good job they didn't get any higher.

Lucky escape!

Recovery time was about 20 minutes, just got back on some easier rock! Might be a while before I go above VS again though.

You had me going there, a double exposure. Lucky you did get much higher!

You'd done the hard bit!

Hence why I am massively hacked* off. (clearly not the actual word to describe how I feel)

Ha, nice one, proper screamer!

Does it lower the grade putting in a runer on the right? Id of thought the baby bouncer effect would be quite fun?

Such a great route! What happened!? Slip?

I would have been really annoyed if someone else had started up the route while I was still on it, clipped my runner and then fallen on it. Very bad form.

Rob, you do realise this is 2 photos over one another? Notice how both leaders look the same? It took me a while to realise as well. Great photo.

why didnt you put a runner on the right aswell?

Lol @ tomwheeler.
Baby bouncer is the way to go (still E2), unless he was on the E3?

Side runner lowers the grade in my opinion
