Dude ground-falls 30' because his belayer didn't have her had on the brake end of the rope. Dude then goes back up and finishes the climb with the same belayer. That is just the beginning; there is so much wrong in this video. Enjoy!

"I should have caught you, huh?"

Totally his fault, he should have just banged her in the car and skipped trying to impress her.

You think he would at least say something about her belaying... or not climb again. I'd place more gear too if the rock is that loose. Oh boy.

Looked to me like broheim was in ground fall regardless... pretty high over his last piece... I couldnt believe some of the loose choss he was pulling on.

Wow!! This is probably the scariest of all the noob videos I have seen on the net.

What. The. Hell.

He just jumps back on the rock without even a "keep your break hand on the rope."

Amazing he wasn't hurt at all. I had to stop after he decked, too painful to watch.

Also, helmet cam climbing videos really suck, don't they?

i am bored and lame. I needed to get that out of the way first.

so, I watched a few more of his videos. The fall is really not all that surprising when you see the other stuff the dude is doing. I don't want to be a dick, but he really has no clue. In one video he gets to a ledge at the top of the climb and calls off-belay before he clips into his anchor. He then proceeds to build the biggest death triangle, not-really-an anchor I have ever seen.



In a few other videos he does some equally unsafe stuff.


The kid has balls, I'll give him that. I hope he gets some common sense and instruction before he gets really hurt.

So, you're saying I shouldn't take tips from him on cam placements? Isn't stabbing them in the best way?

Who knew that when clipping into a two bolt anchor at the of a climb, opposite and opposing carabiners are not really necessary...

Wow. . .
This guy runs out everything, places sketchy pieces and from the looks of the second video he has no clue how to anchor. I wonder if those people with him climb like that. I hope not but im sure they do. Be careful who you climb with out there. . . and who belays you. yikes

I haaate bad belayers! Don't they know someone's life is in their hands? He might as well have been free-solo-ing, then he would not have to carry pro and stop to place it. There is no point with a fake belayer (unless he lands on her to break his fall). I can't believe her blase attitude about letting someone deck

I couldn't resist uploading this cool silhouette my friend Aran took of me on Panische Zeiten.

This guy's videos make me surprised that there aren't more climbing-related deaths each year. I'm sure he's not the only one out there who does some of this stuff, though I haven't heard of anybody taking a 30' grounder and then getting up and finishing the route like that! And I must say, he seems like a nice guy - he's more concerned about his belayer and her comfort than himself.

Given the plethora of videos of this sort, you have to ask, does climbing with a gopro make you a moron, or are morons just more likely to climb with a gopro?

maybe someone should email him or comment on his vids to let him know he's got some issues... so funny she dropped him using a grigri... here I was thinking they were basically idiot proof. Interwebz proves me wrong once again!

Guys, it's ok - he's climbing with a survival strap on. He'll be fine I'm sure.

It's all good as long as the belayer has enough hair spray.

He's a Marine, so he's indestructible anyway.

He decked from running it out, not from belayer error. But it's doubtful she would have caught him even if he wasn't in groundfall range.

50/50 chance when he bites it, it won't be from climbing:
