Ross Goldberg was climbing on the famous Salathé Wall, in Yosemite, last year when this precarious placement ripped. “I was trying to get past a C2 section with a beak with just the tip slotted in,” Goldberg told Climbing. He bounced on the beak and sat on it “for quite some time,” believing it to be solid, before starting to engineer his next placement. “It blew while I was slinging my rack side to side to find my brass nuts,” he said. Who knew? Tipped-out beaks don’t hold up well to heavy side-to-side motion.

Happy Friday, and be safe out there this weekend.
