ouch! I'm guessing it is going to sting again when you take a shower... I guess it could have been worse, because of the R rating

Just so it's clear, that hairy leg does not belong to Marcy!

That's a beauty ! I had one just like it... only closer up to the knee. Several weeks of pain.

Just out of curiosity, how did all you guys manage to get bad rope burns on your legs? Were you run out and you fell badly? I guess I just ask because I recognize all of your names from here on MP and thus I know that you guys are all experienced climbers that wouldn't get your leg behind the rope under normal circumstances....so what gives!! Is that what happens when you fall on the 10R section or what?

Hey J-

Don't know about everyone else but mine came from the first pitch. There are some pretty weird moves, particularly toward the end. I took some wild falls working on it, during one of which my leg snagged the rope. It was a lesson learned the hard way I guess. :)
