There are those that think a run out is having their feet higher than the gear.

I'd agree with wallrodent, except, just like belaying with Gri Gris, it teaches bad habits which can translate to other situations (crags).

I think a good way to save your ankles from a ground fall at Nowra will be to pile up all the maccas trash into a big post modern midden under the route your doing to cushion your landing if you come off.

Actually, you could probably scope out the top out moves from the top of the midden. No need for any stick clipping
