an nyc climber fell from just above the roof on beatle brow bulge. his last clipped piece of gear in the horizontal below the roof caught him, but not before he broke an ankle on the ledge below.

he actually had place two more piece out in the roof, but moved up to and past them in search of a better stance before popping off.

he spoke highly of the climbers nearby and the rangers that assisted him at the base.
