Watch Five Ouch Looking Whippers

Your weekly dose of edge-of-your-seat whipper action

You can go your entire rock climbing life without taking a whipper if you’re careful enough, but more times than not you’ll run into a crux where falling is inevitable. Below are five climbing whippers that look like they left a mark. Always wear a helmet.

Whipper #1

Runout trad climbing whippers sometimes end with an awkward fall.

Whipper #2

Ricky Bell goes for a big move, but goes for a whipper after not sticking it.

Whipper #3

This whipper ends as well as it could, the climber is lucky their head didn’t make contact.

Whipper #4

This whipper is the result of loose rock coming off. Wear a helmet as a belayer if the rock looks sketchy.

Whipper #5

Hamish Ousby goes for a big fall as gear pulls.
