"You may get in a very percarious spot and then they get stuck on a piece four moves below. "
those are indeed great words of advice (&much appreciated) as I found out earlier on the route. A variation of this scenario led me to a static fall onto the daisy/aider set up (stupid, stupid, stupid of me!!). I also found out how the stitches in the daisy have almost no structural strength.
The DA's looked great - hard to believe they're from '86!
many thanks for the suggestions Chief.
