Or good technique?Today, I’m hobbling around on an injured knee after a scary whipper and a cam that blew out during the fall. Bad luck? Or bad technique? No matter how good, or experienced you are, luck is a huge part of climbing. For this reason, I always do little things to protect against bad luck: wear helmets, check knots, place extra gear when possible.” Words by @climbwritekalman - check out more stories of adventure @jamesqmartin
