Capsule style
« on: August 03, 2015, 10:16:38 pm »
I like to fix em high and bivy in the same spot, if it's good.

Sometimes, it's easier than rigging up the triple stack at the end of each day.

Bring many ropes, like 4 or 5.  I feel weird without at least 4.

Rapping in each night, after the hard days work is MO bettah.  No "set up time", just straight to the safety convention.

Don't forget the rope protectors.

yes. when blue collar projecting, it's the only way to go. You've got like two days on the weekend, maybe 3 on occasion, and everything takes way longer than a trade route per pitch.

digging dirt. breaking out crystals. bouncing every piece. drilling anchors. making coffee. eating Hostess Apple Pies.

Shit takes time.

but how do you rig when capsuling?

You lose lockers the more you fix.


What knot?

I think it is applicable to a moderate/hard route that will take 5-7 days.

Think about what EE and Kate do, sometimes capsule, other times they move it up each day.

Bring 240 carabiners, 6 lockers.

Ok, Ok.

Just bring duct tape and leave the lockers at home.

Sounds about right. The only reason I like wall climbing is the camping part. The rest of it is work.

Jugging 400-600' of rope every morning is good for the soul.
Sometimes the difference between a layman and a journeyman is simply what he is allowed to believe himself to be.

ordinarily, I'd tell you to go fuk yerself, but faith is never easy. Each time I had to go back up, it required a centering, 2 limes, and cajoling Miwok into going first. ;)
