Cool TR.
The one time we went to Cosmic we tried Interstate 31 too. We didn't have enough cams. The hope was that there'd be some slightly wider sections that would take BD #3 and some slightly narrower ones that would take BD #1, but we never found any. #2 the whole way. Every #1 was undercammed, every #3 was overcammed and we only had 2 x #2s. We lowered off, and then rapped down to clean the gear.

I would have thought though that the rope drag may have given you a soft catch as the belayer, but would have actually increased the fall factor and impact force on the leader and top piece.
