Sounds similar to a fall by a friend of mine I witnessed.
He was roughly three feet to the left and four feet above his last draw (about 5 feet diagonally) when he fell. The climb was an 85-degree slab.
When he lost it he fell down; the rope pulled him to the right; rolling him onto his his butt and shoulder; and smacked the back of his head HARD on the wall. (Luckily he was wearing a helmet so he got off with a headache and a bruised hip and shoulder.)
When he came to rest at the end of the fall he was semi-horizontal with his torso/head angled down and his back nearly flat against the wall.
Luckily someone else was shooting video on his digital camera at the time so I have the whole thing in a video clip.
