In reply to:
Your partner is either unconscious or simply unable to dislodge their leg from the constriction and they request your assistance.

If they request my help I'll yell at them to get a piece or two in (they got the rack and a crack their foot is in) and secure them self in case the top one gives out on them. After that if they are conscious they can french on a piece while I bounce/pull on my side, might get them free.

If that's not in your scenario, how far above me is s/he? Did s/he fall in line with the rope or are they off to the side? They fell 10 ft but is there just one piece above them or possible 2, one near them? Am I carrying a tag line? I never leave the deck without a set of prusik's, am I allowed to have them in this scenario? Are we in an area where yelling would do any good? I'd probably yell anyway just in case.
