It was!Started this tred as a joke/non joke.I'm all summit and ole man for the newbies don't get scared but in your haste tunnel vision of of your climber pay particular attention to your stand and safety lines!!!! I have a friend who's parralized,a rock in the spine so choose a tree at least with no rock's at the base.Got hung up one night post didn't teather the platform to the climber and it dropped caught my arm in the climber bent the shit out of it no cell phone screamed like a banchee finally did the slide down,thank my lucky stars I can share this!!!Moral of story,doh,be safe[up]Consider yourself lucky. Could have been allot worse.
LOL, given you "only got scratched" I figured I'd give you some crap about still using one, glad you're ok though.But it wasn't broke,only costed $70 in 1974,should I upgrade?
