The key piece that would have kept him off the ground pulled.

If he didn't have that low, difficult section wired then he needed to double up the piece that came out because where he came off was a high enough fall to have had significant consequences. Pretty much any time you are making a placement where there is groundfall potential and anything other than completely bomb pro, you should double up.
