Ah, in fact it was a 30m rope (though 8.5mm, not 8mm). I thought for sure someone would have noticed that.

I used a couple of figure 8's to connect to the carabiner. Don't know how to tie a butterfly.

And of course there's no helmet.

And did you notice the threatening weather overhead?

Who are these knuckleheads?

This one is another classic abuse of gear:

I repair most damage with seam grip and sewing. But the two stress rips between the shoulder blades and down between the straps worried me; hard to sew that area.
