The singularly most dangerous thing ... 26-Oct-2005 At 8:38:13 PM robin
My first attempt on Sandinista. Having failed and fallen just below the final roof I hooked an old death beena (previously dropped) onto a single old fixed wire. I back cleaned the second half of the route back to the half way rest ledge. I then threaded my second orange 9mm rope through an old green sling attached to an old piton. I back cleaned the first half of the climb then jumped off from about 8 - 10m height. With the pendulon and rope stretch I pulled up about 2m above a large rock. At the time I thought it was pretty cool. A couple of months later I didn't think it was so cool when I noticed about 2m of nylon burn on my rope with fibres of green sling.
