Climbing partner took a fall at the top of Agag’s Direct. This move is definitely the crux of the route. Before this, the route is easy but poorly protected. At the top of the route my climbing partner’s foot slipped and took a fall. Every single bit of gear popped. Upside down ground fall incurred.
Read the reviews/comments of a route before climbing. Not much else, unfortunately shit happens.

Serious injury requiring medical treatment

Rescue Services Involved?
Helicopter rescue, paramedics, Dartmoor mountain rescue, fire and rescue service and the biggest help, other climbers at the crag. They helped us on the stretcher and getting kit out.
