Bravo. I used to sling big top ropes here back in the day, right and left side, all with no directionals, so if you peeled you took the big swing. Back then my rack consisted of 10, 20, and 40' loops of webbing. This must have been some 20 years ago, just after the left side sport route bolts got pulled but access was still allowed. A site of so much inspiration for me. I saw a "newbie" named Robin Erbesfield pulling off a testpiece 12 and watched Betty Jo and Roy crank off 11s, all on wacky TRs. I basically learned the beauty of a sport with no gender or age limitations, and the joy of making do with what you've got. Hopefully the left side will follow.
