UKC: Elder Statesman and a ground fall for Michele Caminati

Note: you don't see him deck, just fall out of shot (I only watched it after finding this out), and Caminati requested that it be posted so people could learn from his misfortune. 16 seconds of slo-mo footage of exactly what happened to the rope as it's pulled against the arete.

Stay safe, everyone.
