Well you can swing forward to back OR side to side, you know, like a pendulum traverse. And if it's a pitch of mostly horizontal climbing you're not going to be able to clean that while being lowered either.

I guess we're back to "try it," then. In fact, since you're a local, I'll be more specific. Go to Echo Cliffs, and try it on one the 12s in the Kamikaze Cave.

Don't those all have fixed draws on them? Sly

Seriously though, there's some routes out there that can only be cleaned my following them...

Not those routes in the cave, but you can clean them by lowering. I can't imaging why anyone would try to clean them on rappel. I doubt anyone ever has. Maybe Jeremiah will come out here and show us all how it's done.
