Before replying please ask yourself 3 questions.

Is it necessary?
Is it true?
Is it kind?

I doubt anyone knows, but the floor failure was far more likely due to
rot where the beam ends enter the wet wall. I doubt our inefficiently
resealed rope holes made one jot of difference.
There were big gaps round the "roof", I think enough to climb past it,
but I cant remember.

Particularly if water then started pouring through the holes you cut...
