First the carrot, then the stick!

As the person who suggested you(we) replace the tat rap stations I can't be too critical

So, the first rap point is good- well placed and in good rock.

The second rap point is placed in the best rock near the cliff edge, however because of the positioning the rope was always going to be difficult to pull down.

Now, as the 'man left holding the baby' so to speak i.e The last person of a party of 8 to descend, I witnessed first hand that the rope would not budge when pulling directly from below, that's why I angled the rope (about 30o) away from the edge, to improve the angle of dangle. But alas the V-notch was not apparent at the time.

Anywho, never let the facts get in the way of a good story......

btw ahem, no such issues with the rings on Gomper
