Jon Frank, Bill Ward, Jack Wurster (1986) (edit re. name: stappado’ or ‘stapado’ was a form of punishment or of torture to extort confession in which the victim's hands were tied across his back and secured to a pulley.

yea. seemed like a sandbag. I guess it was a fun route...i am still not sure. The hands down hand jams and difficult gear placement pumped me pretty hard on a fricken 30ft climb.
