Rock Climbing Photos : Big Wall : "A1+" on The Shortest Straw - The Soloist's View

"A1+" on The Shortest Straw - The Soloist's View

This pitch was memorable, if only for its "sandbaggedness". It runs up the left side of the White Circle next to Zodiac.

The Continuous Loop begins at the lower station which is next to my Crab-O-Ledge which you can see beneath and at right.

The turquoise lead rope comes up through the rivet where it is rebelayed with a long prusik and then up to the slippery overhand chain knot just right of my right toe.

The long purple sling is a Sliding X beneath which another blue sling is attached, and into this blue sling goes the fifi on the Solo Tag Rack.
