I took a lead fall, my first cam placement blew and the spike I had a sling around and a cam behind snapped clean at the base. This resulted in a ground fall and a significant piece of rock detaching itself from the crag. The spike snapped off at its base, and luckily avoided hitting myself, my belayer and the crag dog.
Gear (two cams) was placed in poor quality rock and ripped out during the fall. One cam was not placed well. The lead climber had not climbed at this crag before and had not climbed on gritstone in about a year.
