Don't fall here... Don't fall here...

Don't fall here... Don't fall here...

Just after getting past the P2 crux. It's a pretty safe bet to say that both Rob (below) & I would have been screwed if I would have taken a fall onto the "protection" below, a nut & pin in the only crack I could find, in choss. The anchor below consists of a fluke & technical tool used as a deadman in stamped-down powder. 10 January, '10

I did have you on belay.

As bad as this pic looks i did have you on belay. I was still holding the rope with my hands in my pocket....
And to be fair now dirk, i think if you had fallen to the climbers right i can clearly jump to the other side of the ridge and catch the fall that way... plus Your gear might have snagged on something after it ripped

Re: I did have you on belay.

Belay?! I thought the only reason we pulled out the rope was for the photo op's!
