Chose to do this route as my warm up despite it being very close to my onsite limit because I had climbed it successfully previously. The route has a small ledge (protruding by about 1 ft) between the 2nd and 3rd bolts. I had got to the jug from which you would normally clip the 4th bolt but was pumped senseless and knew that placing the draw and pulling up slack was just going to result in a bigger fall, confident in my regular belayer I just jumped without communicating my intent. Didnt realise that my belayer had thought I would be clipping and preemptively had the rope out ready. I fell and caught my foot on the ledge on the way down, stopped a metre or so from the ground. Bad sprained ankle and a bruised ego.
