One of my climbing students climbing in Nam Pha Pha Yai was belaying at a relatively new route when this sharp chunk of rock fell onto his head. Can’t imagine what would have been the result if he had neglected to wear his helmet that day. Think you should only wear your helmet when climbing? Think again.
A good reminder to always bring your brain bucket along and use it.
Good picture to use to reinforce this point in class. Full post here:
