We didn't even ask, once you were off, you got lowered. Most of my friends also climbed by the three strikes and you're out rule, so fall off three times and that's it. My first attempt on Airation I had all but the last piece in but took the three falls getting there. I'd never been on it, so broke my rule and finished it, no further falls. The next week I flashed it with the crux seeping hard to atone.
