Weekend Whipper: Best PSA For Wearing A Helmet You’ll See This Week
Helmet for the win.By Rock and Ice | April 3rd, 2020
This fall, which Ty Sanderford took back in February, likely would have ended up very differently if he hadn’t had his helmet on. We shudder to think about it.
The route is Rednekk Justus, a 5.10+++ (according to the inscription on a rock a the base) out in Escalante Canyon, Colorado.
Ty told Rock and Ice, “I was at the top of the route, super pumped and I had just missed the clip for the chains. I knew I was going to have to take the fall so I looked down to check my feet noting that the rope was not behind my leg so I thought I was in the clear to take the fall. The next thing I knew, I was on my back.”
Glad you’re okay Ty!
Hang in there everybody, the rocks aren’t going anywhere. Happy Friday y’all!
