Sorry to hear about your fall poppa bear. Amsteel is certainly different from rope. Backups are important. Not to be discouraging, however; I bruised my tailbone severely jumping off a cliff into the Colorado River on my 50th birthday. I would do it again if I had the chance. Took me nearly 2 years before the pain was totally gone. Nurse it, and take it seriously. Pain is our bodies telling us to pay attention. Best to you and "hang" in there.
