Big wall - Switch from self belay to being belayed 17-Jan-2013 At 6:55:59 AM sliamese
Pull ALL the slack up when short fixing. If the second has an issue you can keep moving. Simply clip into a bomber piece and drop the rope. Your still connected to the system. Shortfixing implies some extra risks for speed. It is possible to lead a whole pitch while someone cleans a pitch, practice your system!

The real fast guys dont put themselves on belay, just climb. The loop of rope piled on the ledge is lovingly known as the pakistani death loop. Higher you climb, safer you become!
