Rock Climbing Photos : Big Wall : Solo Tag Rack on Lunar Eclipse

Solo Tag Rack on Lunar Eclipse

Solo Tag Rack on Lunar Eclipse

Looking from the top down, the main anchor is the red cordalette, which goes to the Power Point Locker just left of the corner of the ledge. The ledge has been firmly fastened to the wall so it does not blow around and tangle stuff. The pigs are attached to the Power Point with two Docking Tethers, red at left and brownish-yellow at right.

From the Power Point, the turquoise lead rope goes straight up to the blue screamer, which is the first piece of pro I have placed. You can see how I've used a short red prusik loop of a unique size and colour to hold the lead rope in the correct orientation.

The lead rope goes from the blue screamer to my Grigri, and thence to the backup knot on my harness, neither of which are shown since like I'm taking the picture, eh?

From me, the turquoise lead rope returns in front of the left beige pig, and enters the Green Lead Rope Bag which is attached to the Solo Tag Rack.

The almost-end of the turquoise rope comes out the top of the green lead rope bag, and through the slippery overhand knot chain which is directly overtop of the knot protector I use to protect the fifi hook locker on the Solo Tag Rack. You can click here to see a better shot of the slippery overhand chain knot.

The Solo Tag Rack is all that stuff left of the green bag. You can see a thin rope coming out of the bag to the fifi, then back into the bag. That is my 10m-long Solo Tag Extension Rope. The things directly in front of the green bag are cordalettes on the Solo Tag Rack.

Not shown is the top of the Haul Line attached to the bottom of the Solo Tag Rack, which goes to the Blue Haul Line Bag which you can see beneath the green lead rope bag.

The bottom end of the haul line white rope that returns to the Power Point immediately left of the red Docking Tether, thus completing the Continuous Loop.
