anyone try it?

it's way too hot to climb in mid-day here in logan, utah, and so the other day me and some friends set up about a sixty foot line over a deep spot in the river; about fifteen feet high.

pretty good practice for getting the jitters out of your system for higher stuff. we were all pretty proficient at walking sixty foot lines back and forth between trees or whatever. however, once we got above the water, the shakes came in and we just sucked ass. none of us made it more than six steps or so before falling into the drink. I guess I'm not ready to do the real high stuff yet.

I looked and looked for a suitable place to set one up at Lake Powell last weekend, wasn't able to find a good one. Tried setting it up between the houseboat and the shore even, but there was too much give (the house boat would move) I even tried to get my fix in by walking the mooring lines (rope rolls and hurts your feet.)

Where did you set it up in Logan? Next time I'm up there I may have to go try it.

I set it up over the upper end of that reservoir that is at the mouth of logan canyon, between a pedestrian bridge and the highway, which was about sixty feet.

Need water? Come to Minnesota. Need rocks? Go somewhere else.
