Badass! What was your system for Solo? Looks like you had a Silent Partner and potentially fell on it?!

Solo setup was a silent partner, took 3 whippers on it and a couple daisy falls.

100 foot fall was belayed, it had started snowing so I was trying to move as fast as possible, back cleaning (aiding since I couldn't feel my hands). Standing on a hook on a polished ledge I reached down to clean the cam below me. I had to jerk it out and the momentum pulled my hook off. The pictured pin was around 20 feet below me, but before breaking it pulled me into the wall, sending me upside down and away from the previous belay ledge. Put quite a few holes in my rain jacket, some bloody hands, but overall I was completely unharmed. A purple totem caught my fall.
