Is this also the start of a new round of interstate rivalry to make the climbing forays into yonder territory pale into insignificance?
Heh

Hey Olbert, so on the weekend I was climbing with a lead rope and a second rope through a top rope anchor to my belayer. Placing gear and clipping in as if my belay was on the lead rope. I didn't aid or weight any of my placements, but what your saying is set the same thing up again and the actually pull myself up the climb using the gear I just placed ? I suppose to give me confidence in my placements. Cheers for the advice.

Yes, this is a great trad training technique that I have seen even very experienced climbers do... mind you, I am yet to determine why they always seem to choose to test the quality of their gear placement right at the crux (edit: heh heh ;) or some such)

>Hey Olbert,
Well I can hardly claim that I invented the technique myself, I read once when mikl(Mike Law) posted about doing it. I actually first used it cos I was so terrified whilst climbing a route that I almost spewed. I managed to climb two thirds of the way up it before my terrifiedness got the better of me. I sat on my gear, for the first time ever testing a piece placed on lead. I then proceeded to aid my way up resting/pulling on every subsequent piece. None of them pulled! Subsequently I came back and crushed that route with much less fear! I have now even taken a proper lead fall!!

AirAsia is good for short-haul, who cares when you're only on the plane for 2 hours?

Thanks guys. Yeah I really enjoyed it -well afterwards anyway... what next? I was feeling brave about trying a 14 but then fell several times (on 2nd) on 2nd pitch of D Minor so kinda scared me again... suggestions for this coming weekend anyone? something that requires little or no upper body strength? x

Take Five?
At least you don't have to worry if you drop your wires again.

Get out your Araps guide, Sarah.

Stoked that my hand has come around fully. Pulling as hard as I was before I put the hole
in it.

Stoked that I will be at the Pines this weekend. Counting down.

Right Watchtower Face. But don't take me seriously! It meets your stated criteria but has some slight disadvantages in terms of a surplus of grade and a deficit of protection.
