Exactly... you can even see the dreaded "crumble" effect in that video! The rock looks pretty non-sandy too by Indian Creek standards. I've had that happen first-hand several times while belaying, always with yellow alien or smaller... scary as hell but resulting fortunately in only minor injuries, sprained ankles etc. Moral of the story: place significantly more pieces in soft sandstone thin cracks than you would on bomber granite or quartzite!! Especially if using Aliens or TCUs.
