Good landing? I hurt myself here once, before crash pads came along, hurt so bad I almost fainted. I hobbled back to the car, drove to the Northridge ER and was told I had "jammed" my heel. Be sure to put a pad down there a slab of rock right beneath a thin layer of sand.

Crux hold broke a week or two ago. I'm guessing the grade is open for debate now.
