My best spot ever:
Here's a classic! I've been dredging up some old footage, and this is James Litz climbing Fuc Yo, a sweet V9 at Hounds Ears.
It was wet that day and James fell off the last move, although this was an easy problem for him.
Luckily, I was there to catch him!
I would grade this spot at V9 onsight.
Unfortunately, it broke my nose... But James Lived!
I believe spotting is a skill, just like climbing or falling. Remember to train your spotting! focus on the climbers movement and center body-mass, not there hands, etc.
Try Hard to catch them at their center body-mass or at least take weight off their descent.
...I did send this climb as well and it is amazing!
Seek perfection of character, respect others & Try Hard.
