This is page 9 of my presentation.
Check out Humar's aiders in the photo below. Pretty rinky dink, eh? This is the European style where the single aider is put on a fifi with a long cord attached to Tomaz' harness.
Dr. Piton would say that this is emphatically NOT the Better Way, but when you are as bad ass as Tomaz, you can solo any frickin' way you choose!
But being bitchin' has its disadvantages, as Tomaz was about to learn.
You would think that a guy like Tomaz could arrive in Yosemite, inquire among the locals, and be able to get beta and a topo for his proposed route, right?
