Falling ice
The dangers of ice climbing - falling ice. In a split second I went from belaying to falling to the ground, pulling my leader off (and catching him) and bleeding all over the place. Luckily a first responder was climbing a route not far from us. No stitches required, just some dermabond. An inch to the left and it would have been a different story. At the Waterfall at Poke-O-Moonshine, NY

You were lucky in not being hit in the eye! I hope the wound will heal well, and not leave much of a scar.

Glad you're OK though. Somehow, I think you'll wear it with pride. :)

Good on you catching the lead...

Gotta learn French damnit.

Cool battle scar.

My most recent ice injury wasn't so gnarly (flap of skin torn on my nose by a dinner plate) but it did bleed a lot.

My wife did *not* dig it.

(Thanks to RGG for image embedding tip!)
