Great ridge.... great photo... great accomplishment...
placing the gear slow you down a lot? I guess it does get slippery on the rock with the snow...
Great Photo. I may be a little on the vain side, but If I were him, I'd have that framed. That's Badass...
Placing gear was ok but flaking the rope out and tieing in slowed us down much more. Wasn't much room to just throw the rope down, as ya know! :o)
I still need to send him my pics but I'll definately add the note to consider an enlargement! ;o)
And good trip report as well. IMHO, you should be roping up a lot more often.
a nice place to be and take such great shot!
Is the blue rope used for French... Hmm, joint (right word?)? Isn't it too slim?
Slim for a haul line, sure. But we've always been comfortable with thinner ropes. My ropes tend to run 9-ish. That one I believe was 8.3 and was Mark's.
But yah, I hear you! :o)
Looks like you had quite an adventure there.
