Date of Incident
I was climbing on a top rope and slipped as soon as I began climbing. I made contact with the ground on rope stretch and badly twisted my ankle on the uneven ground.
Bouldering mats were not commonly used in 1995. But if Ihad used one back then, I may not have twisted my ankle.
Trad rock climbing
Dislocation or joint injury
