The singularly most dangerous thing ... 25-Oct-2005 At 11:45:15 AM nmonteith
Rebolting Mr Joshua pitch 2. Forgotting to bring a double rope absiel device and having to hand over
hand down my doubled rope (attached to a single prussic loop over a bollard) on the slabs to the lip of
Taipan Wall (above Mr Joshua). The rope ended right at the lip and i had to free hang by one hand whilst
trying to clip myself into a rap chain on the lip of the 60m high cave. I was pumped, panicking and
hyperventilating. I honestly thought there was going to be a large ledge to stand on whilst clipping into
this anchor. I needed half an hour to calm down after this incident. It didn't help that no-one below me
could be bothered to tell me my rope was hanging in space! Bah...shudder.
