Both me and my partner fell about 250 feet until we hit a climber below us. We were able to grab onto the climber and his rope arrested our fall.

HAHAHAHA.. thats friggin awesome! WAY beter than Vertical Limit!

So much better! In Vertical Limit its just the rope catching around another climber, in this scenario not one, but both fallers actually arrest their falls by grabbing the climber himself. The impact of each incoming faller would have to be like getting hit by a car, and yet he's just happy to help out and lend them a rope while continuing up the route.
