Nice shot.

"best simul-rappel "
that's anchor-free simul-rap, right?
How hard is it on the ropes - did you see any major sheath damage?

Re: Nice shot.

yes, and no I did not see any damage to my ropes. They did not move at all. I have done much worse things to them in the rockies. It was fun, we had three people so one took a photo of us doing it, but he is not an SP member and I don't add other's photos. It was not a big deal, just something different so everyone talks about it.

photo! Looks like a great climb. Sorry I can't tell much from this photo, but is that bolted? I would guess its not since you simul-rappeled. Just wondering....
