1. If you or your friend manage to flip over while falling on toprope, I kindlyy suggest that you re-evaluate the way you climb, fall and belay.

2. on another note, that is something helmets can be useful for.

3. on a third note, I'm calling staged shot, but if not, see 1.

Knowing how you are going to fall is critical not to get hurt. There are times too, when even a slight break in concentration and effort result in instant falling.

The new owner of this site is looking for feedback. One of the things that always comes up is what language is deemed "offensive" and not allowed in posts. To me the two most offensive words/phrases in a climbing context are "youtube" and "gopro". I have never seen a worthwhile vthread where the first post contains one of thiose.

GoPros are the worst thing to happen to climbing since bouldering.

Are you kidding? Now I can watch the incredible ineptitude of the very worst of the worst gumbies from the safety of my computer! In the olden days, you either had to leave the scene and miss out on the hilarity, or you were risking your life that they'd fall on you or your belayer (pulling you off the wall)*, fall on each other (requiring you to abandon your day and help carry out one or more of them)*, or get stuck on a route (requiring a rescue)*, or at the very least make you horribly nervous waiting for one of those to happen*.

Now I get to watch them without any of that!

GO

* All of these and more have happened to me personally.

That makes no sense. I'm guessing you -
a) have no spell/grammar check
b) posted at 3:16am whilst drunk
c) both of the above.

my money is on semi-smart spambot.
1. make a few barely topical posts
2. ask "question" (home loan, Ultrasound, $SpamOfTheDay$)
3. Provide answer with "helpful" link

This guy thinks you need to step your game up. Learn to fall like a real idiot.
