odd for both climbers to get hurt ... especially for the belayer (or were they simuling or rapping?) to get pulled up 12m then dropped


Another possible scenario:

1. They were starting the climb from a ledge 12 meters (~40') above the lower surrounding area; leader fell, ripped the gear and anchor; both ended up in the lower area.

Hope both climbers get better soon and heal up well.

That was the kind of scenario I had imagined: climber falls about 6m up from ledge, rips the pro and both climbers tumble down off a ledge/boulder/talus slope.

However it happened, I hope they recover well.
