Five stinkin' rappels in pitch darkness to get down three easy pitches. Twenty-three years later, I still remember two of the anchors. The first was a sling wrapped around a fist-sized rock jammed in a slot. The fourth (I think) was a #2 unwired Hexcentric, placed end-to-end, with one end on a crystal. We'd looked around that stance for a better anchor, and after a half-hour's search settled on that. We had that horrendous moat under us to keep it entertaining. (Derek says it was about 50 feet deep. I thought it was bottomless. I think I smelled tide flats.) At the time, I felt that anchor had about a 90% chance of holding. Great odds for the lottery, but substandard for rappels.
If, hypothetically speaking, a guy took a reject Kodachrome slide that had come out all black, and if he hypothetically scratched a picture with a pin in the emulsion on the back side, It would still be a photograph, wouldn't it? Hypothetically?
