Watch this clip fast - I'm guessing it will be taken down soon.

It's amazing to have that much equipment and to put it to such poor use

That pretty much sums up the whole event.

There are a million other issues, but the largest ones I noted were:

- Placement of the anchor totally wrong for the climb (which helped create the rope snag)
- Most ridiculous use of an ascender I've ever seen.
- Failure to do something as simple as *clip* the climber into the rescue rope.
- Failure by the belayer to take up the slack once the climber unsnagged his rope.

Never mind all the millions of reasonable things they *could* have done once the rope was caught. It's just how incredibly bad the choices they made were.
