What may be confusing you guys is that the man pictured is actually pretending to be a stuck climber. However, being a method actor, he has concocted an incredibly complicated top-rope setup to add a bit of reality to the 'stranded top-rope bumbly' rescue scenario that they are rehearsing. Most of what you see in the rope setup is just for show, a few random ropes, some old tat left over from yesteryear, etc. Not obvious from the photo is that he is also wearing flip-flops, desperately hung over, is not carrying any water and never got his lead-cert at the gym. You really have to give this guy mad props for dedication to his art.
