employing climbing skills in non-climbing life 23-Nov-2005 At 10:59:07 AM steph
Painting my house (as a friend and I are currently doing). Most of it is just a ladder job but the pagola....that's another story. Laybacking off the slats to reach those impossible corners, lock-offs from the support beams, and extreme balance for the top. It was a pain of a job but it sounds like I quite enjoyed it as an afterthought :) Any excuse to climb.

Also when we were cleaning the exterior of the house, I set up a mobile anchor point off the roof using daisy chains, slings, crabs, biners and a quickdraw or 2 to hold the bucket etc so we didn't have to go up and down ladders all day.

So I suggest if anyone has spare time and wants a job they can do - try painting houses. or not. my 2 cents :p
