Awesome! I did the exact same thing. Clean air! Nice job. Sucks though knowing you have to do that laybacky bit all over again.

I was up on Cruel Shoes yesterday and saw a guy fall from just below the thank god hold on the pillar. For some reason he didn't have a 3 placed, and so he fell almost all the way to his belayer. It was at least 50 feet, maybe more.

I was scared just watching it.

That's ok. I scare easily.

Good effort, and good on you to get right back up there.
