This was not a good idea.

Still riding high on the fame, fortune, and female interest brought on by our "Slackline wall engineering fail", we decided that we should do something else really stupid.

So we rigged a 100m T-18 line with a 4:1 with a grigri 2 and 2 multipliers. Then we snapped the handle of the grigri trying to release it. Then we cut the rope.

Makes me glad I had to leave early to go to work. Ieuan's hand is fine.

I believe this is merely Scotland's attempts to build a artillery that has a range to reach London. Once successful London won't dare refuse Scotland declaration of independence!

Sorry, my bad wording. I helped rig it but was gone by the time they took it down.
