Daniel Woods’ Carabiner Snapping Fall on First Round First Minute (5.15b)

Daniel Woods has been on a sport climbing trip to Spain, he was projecting Chris Sharma’s testpiece First Round First Minute (9b/5.15b) when a biner snapped!

“Came pretty f*cking close to hitting the ground/road,” Woods wrote on Instagram. “The gear appeared to be fine but ended up being choss. Reminder to check your gear and pre placed gear to prevent anything serious from happening. Be safe out there.”

Beware the in-situ gear left behind on routes!
