I haven't used them yet. Those are my buddies ladders above. I have 6 step BD aiders. I am still hoping they will break so I can justify buying some ladders.

I think that photo offset posted of the Nipple is me! haha!  I think thats me on the Zod with my girlfriend, could be mistaken though!

I think the guy hauling TF is Bob, I was just to the right of him by 100ft doing the traverse pitches from TF over to WOEML, finishing up New Dawn.  That was two weekends ago.  Last weekend I was on the Shield, Jerry Miller got this amazing shots of us on the headwall!


Leading the Groove

Following the Groove


Getting ready for the change over after a big block of pitches...


Leading change over, headed off in Triple Crack thinness.  With the 'secret weapon' deployed I was able to relax in the hammock like it was a Tahiti beach...

Nice Mark. badass for sure. I just posted this on the taco, so it wouldn't be right to not do it here too.
Man that groove looks thinnish.

Halfway out! On P4 of my route Steel Pulse 5.9 1000'

All stance drilled, solo, over 2 days. Despite the rating it may be my most committing solo FA. The "Pay to Play" pitch features 200' fall potential.
