View from the rim looking back at Lost Arrow Tip

Once I got back to the rim I snapped a shot of my friend Chuck jugging up. Keith Lober (One of the YOSAR leader) who climbed with us is the last one left on the spire.

We did the rap down (2 150' ropes joined together) then trailed them up to the spire. The orange line is a line someone left behind, so we trailed it as a backup as well. 1st person across used 1 fixed static line (and was belayed from the spire on our dymanic line) and trailed the rest of the static across to the rim. Making it 2 of our statics, a belay and the crappy orange line as super backup.

We found more slack in the line ment more time jugging vertical instead of horizontal so we would let out slack once the person got 1/2 way across.

Protection...

Even only looking at this shot, my gonads just climbed back inside for protection!
