Sixty honeys? Hmm... I thought he was answering my conversion conundrum - sixty feet. Although sixty feet = sixty meters doesn't make all that much sense either. Oh well.

Oh, and back on topic: "safety hitch" bwahahahaha! What a perfectly rc.com name for clipping in with a daisy.

Because Pedro is so bad at making sense, I will try to explain. His point, at least I think, is that his system allows him to use twin ropes instead of bringing up a second rope for rappels, thus saving weight. However, I may be completely mistaken.

I climb with doubles.

Well we aren’t climbing the same pitches. I’m climbing longer ones than you because of the constraints of your system. I’m pwning you and gettin all the honeys.

Again, someone was mocking my degree of “weight naziness” because I carry an “extra” 3 ounces. This was a hypothetical comparison to demonstrate that my system is actually lighter on a weight per useful length of rope basis (and probably lighter overall if they are doing routes that require full length rappels and aren’t using twins or a skinnier rap cord).

Try re-reading some of the posts, and if you still don’t get it then I probably can’t help you.

Oh, I read them just fine thanks. [rolls eyes]
