Select Your Wall Partners By The Pound

Select Your Wall Partners By The Pound

Sometimes one of the best selection criteria for a wall partner is how well he can haul, and this is often in direct proportion to his lard-assly-ness. Here Shawn [pirate] shows us the Better Way to operate a 2:1 Hauling Ratchet while hauling up to Timbuktu Towers during our ascent of Never Never Land on El Cap's Southwest Face.

Never for a moment would Dr. Piton imply, suggest or otherwise [HINT] that Shawn is a lard-ass, and the Doc sincerly apologizes if he has accidentally conveyed this message in any way whatsoever.

Incidentally, the 2:1 Hauling Ratchet will be the next Aid Climbing Tech Tip in Climbing Magazine. You can click here to read my most recent Tech Tip - Froggy Goes A'Juggin'.
