Besides the usual loose rock and stuff, just a few close calls --

I was in Fayetteville at La Casa Pollo with a friend. Daniel was on the outdoor tower tightening hand holds 4 or 5 panels up when he yelled down to me -- I looked up to see what he was yelling about and saw the T wrench he had dropped about a foot or so above my face! It didn't take long for me to get out of the way.

Then there was that time at band camp -- just kidding. Chad was out climbing the Pepsi Challenge @ Mt. Magazine when he dropped a hex from about 20' -- that time I jumped in the way, caught the hex -- saved the pro!!

I let a friend wear one of my favorite hats while we were out at the Wichita Mountains in Oklahoma. While pulling the rope, it filipped a fist sized rock, dropped it 200' or so, then hit him in the head (I think it knocked out what little sense he had :o ). He still sports around that blood stained hat!

I had a climber dropped on me... She pushed from the wall too far and came down right on my head, If I hadn't ducked jsut ever so slightly she could have ridden around on my shoulders... no rocks or anything dangerous liek that yet.. can't wait for warmer weather.

My buddy and I were at a local toproping area. We set up a TR on this climb that's inside a little canyon-like thing (about 10 feet wide). I rapelled to the bottom and started to put my shoes on while I waited for him. He's about 60 feet up (the top of the climb).

From the top I hear him shouting "Ro.. er.. ah.. WATER BOTTLE!!!" I look up just in time to see a large, full water bottle richochet off the back wall and head straight for my head. I duck just in time and the thing explodes about a foot from me and gets me wet. That was the closest.

I got back at him though... We were at this other place about a month ago. I was climbing up this 10c and this basketball sized flake comes off in my hand. I come popping off the wall and the rock lands about 3 feet from him.

I got antiqued by a chalk ball to the face the other day.. (anyone who has seen the CKY Landspeed or CKY4 videos will know what antiqing is). I was from 1901.
