In 2020 Jake Palazzi had one of those classic rappel accidents.  Upon topping out on a five pitch route,  Wherever I may roam at Smith Rock in Oregon, he came to a crashing halt after falling a full pitch and rag dolling another 150 ft to the hiker's trail. How did he survive rappelling off the end of his rope? He is here to tell you his miracle  of a story and  to remind you to always check your knots or use an autoblock before you jump back over that ledge and yell" On rappel".
