Rock Climbing Photos : Misc : nasty fall with iceberg

nasty fall with iceberg

nasty fall with iceberg

this is the complete sequence of a top rope fall on ice at the ouray ice park. this sequence puts the fall in context and makes it much easier to visualize than the last pic of it i posted. the chunk of ice that struck eric was estimated at about 400 lbs. and it almost claimed the belayer as well. everyone survived the incident and it served as a nice reminder about the hazards of ice climbing. the entire sequence represents less than 1.5 seconds of real time.
