Date of Incident
A man on the next route over three his rope down whilst I was seconding. As he threw it he shouted rope below, but the rope came down the route I was on, hitting my helmet and a loop landed around my neck. No injuries occurred.
Checking below and to the sides before throwing a rope, and maybe being prepared to carry a rope down at a busier crag. I was also very glad to be wearing a helmet.
Trad rock climbing
