njrg is the shi
look at that, free solo, head down, tail position perfect, the monkey...err...human doesn't look too bad from what i can see either.
there's no redundancy, if the anchor or chain fails your number's up
wrong, get qualified instruction, what kind of rope is that?
i concur, not horseman
what the heck is going on in that anchor?
hmm, what route is that the climber is on
that's why I love the gunks. grades? I find them to be more suggestions.
I want it now!
someone needs to power wash that wall
actually if it's a sloper in zero g it would be really hard to not slip up off it...
Hanging belay on Betty?
except that it's a freaking trad sling and twisted around so if you fell it probably wouldn't matter, it's not a sport draw so i wouldn't worry about that too much.
nice! that cam's not expanded evenly though.
Love gear placement pics
Yes you could, I'll post a picture, it's more awkward than with a handled ascender (I wouldn't use the tibloc for a every day rig, if you know you will be ascending a lot i'd at least use a basic ascender). as with a grigri you need to either really sit on the cinch or make sure it's locked before you load it or it might not catch immediately if you let the rope creep slowly, also the cinch seems to be more position dependent than the grigri, and since you are not pulling the brake strand down but up, it's important to make sure it locks, that said it's easy and works well if you want to haul your butt up the rock.
watch that rope behind your leg
I bet the story behind that placement could fill some pages
money and politics of course. when i saw this on the homepage i knew instantly where it was...maybe one day we'll be allowed climb on it...
As long as your second doesn't fall it's fine, otherwise, hopefully you were anchored in, and you'd still be pulled into the ground pretty hard and probably not without injury. your second however probably will be injured when you drop them because it seems you are belaying off the harness and will probably loose your brake hand when you get slammed into the ground...if you hold on that long.
i know that view :)
good photo. looks like the lower can is almost tipped out, and the upper is almost fully contracted, not good
similar things exist but simpler, look at rescue and high angle biners that have a removable pin to capture a sling etc in the biner
