Thanks Bill. I have to agree with you and MFC on this one. Ascending the rope seems like the most viable option other than breaking your whistle out. I can see how the belayer would be able to protect themselves fairly well by re clipping the rope into every piece as they pass it. If the top piece were to fail however, it could be indescribably bad for the leader. Anyway, thanks for the ideas. Sounds like a pretty sticking situation however you choose to handle it.
