Help me name/ identify this crash

Had one of these the other day. I'm guessing anyone that's ridden trials for a while has experienced the same thing. Is there a name for it?

1. Approach large-ish rock. Intensions of Jap-zapping/ Splattering whatever.
2. Initiate wheelie with some gusto, building inertia in the flywheel
3. Lose traction to the rear wheel
4. Watch with horror as front wheel drops precipitously before rapidly approaching rock
5. Remove hands from bars to cushion impact with rock face, smack into rock
6. Realize that clutch is no longer pulled in as said inertia in flywheel has moved to rear wheel, which is about to touch down again at the conclusion of the rock-endo
7. Violently spinning rear wheel reconnects with the ground, thereby propelling the bike back up the face of the rock and into your sternum/ soft tissue/ vital organs.

Do we have a name for this? Jap Splat? Double slip? Anyone?

My `92 Beta Zero did that to me on my first ride, and every ride for the first six months. It was hard to want to go riding knowing that at least once you were going to smash your nuts into that frame! That is why hydraulic clutches became the norm.

Post whiskey throttle on an insufficiently weighted rear wheel crash. What is that? PWTIWRW?

Love that one!

Guess I am lucky I haven't had a bad PWTIWRW yet, and not looking forward to when it finally dose.

Oh yeah. I wish you'd tell somebody before you do these things. It's nice to share.

My late father called every crash "a flop", I love that phrase, to have a crash would be "to take a flop"...
