Route

Incident

Decided to try and highball Opus since there were a lot of pads knocking about. Jumped off from near the top, decided it was fine so went for it again, didn't fully commit and fell, missing all but one pad and spraining both ankles. Walked back to the car, and made it home. Went to hospital the next day where I discovered I'd sprained both ankles (Nurses said I deserved to have broken both legs)

Lessons

Commit to smears, make sure pads are in the right place, if you hurt yourself go to hospital sharpish.
