Big Wall Forum / Re: Preferred hauling setups

Rags, I noticed the same setup recomended in petzl's instruction manual for the basic and the handled ascender.  I also had never thought that the ascender could be moved from the load side of the pulley to the non load side.  I can see a few advantages such as not having to weight the ascender, and you can get more height when raising the load.  I would like to see some discussion on disadvantages, as I have never even seen this setup discussed in climbing or rescue.  Everyone have a good year,  Jody

Fallling Shards of Glass?  What's it close to?  Anyone have a topo?
Here's another photo of the NF, the movie screen on Scott Fisher Memorial.

Here's a photo of the variation.  Sorry for the quality, but it's a scanned slide.  I led the first pitch and my partner started the free traverse and didn't like it.  The topo we had at the time showed the varitation at A3, which it is not, more like C1 or C2 maybe.  It finished at its own 2 or 3 bolt anchor the best I can recall.  It's for sure the way to go if your not trying to maximize free climbing.
