You won't ever find me on a route like that! Absolutely awesome.

A freakin "HAND TRAVERSE!" That's insane.

Looks very neat, great action shot. What I'm wondering is that a long cord around the flake for pro?

Agreed, very nice action shot. It looks like the block has a fixed sling on it. Radek?

Thanks Haydar.

I slung that sucker with a cordalette. You can place a 4 inch cam behind the flake (which sounds/seems solid enough) but I did not have anything that large with me and my last piece of pro was a good distance below.....slinging seemed like an option at that time (also made things more interesting for Shirley :)

I am guessing that Radek pulled the elusive "lasso-aid" move. You don't see it used too often! :)

Thanks Martin.

I placed it there actually (in retrospect not really necessary as the traverse is pretty trivial) but it seemed like a good idea at the moment :)
