Date of Incident
When setting up a belay at the top of the climb I slipped but managed to grab hold of the anchor I had created. Otherwsie, I would have fallen a very long way with serious consequences.
Whilst I had finished the climb, I failed to appreciate the risk I was still exposed to. I was still on steep ground above a long fall and unattached to an anchor.
