Nice landing technique though. if you land perfectly flat on your back, and all points hit at the exact same time, there is little chance of breaking any bones since the force is distributed over such a large area!

Yes but you still risk landing on your nut tool.

Nut tools, large cams and hexes should be racked on the sides if using the "backflop" technique. Only draws and slings should be racked behind you.

how do you rack uo?

nut first, cam first, cams on one side nut on the other or what?

Passive on left, active on right. Relevance?

But having a quick draw shoved up you ass doesn't sound like a party either

Passiveon the right, small cams on the left, larger cams behind on the right. I'm right handed, so I want access to nuts which I tend to place more of.

Technically I can reach my nuts with both hands though :)

Just try to land on your belayer. It has worked for me in the past.
