Watch Trad Climber Take a Scary Fall After Gear Pulls

A climber on a technical 5.12 in Squamish took a huge whipper after a small piece of gear rips out

Casey Dubois was climbing the fourth pitch of Warriors of the Wasteland, a 200-metre 5.12 in Squamish when he fell and ripped a 0.1 Black Diamond X4.

After the first piece of gear pulled out, the rope reacted in such a way that the carabiner on the lower piece uncliped. Photographer Kyle Smith was there to capture the action and said that Dubois was OK after the fall.
