I calls it how I sees it. I'm not having a go at the guy, he was lovely... but possibly not all to interested in going into the finer points of instruction, considering we knew how to climb and werenít having a problem taking in the slack. And yes, thanks for that gem of info, but i did already know you wrap the rope behind yourself to slow the climbers descent... due to the crapness of the gri gri, THAT was the only thing keeping my partner from hitting the deck.. Iím not a moron, i just donít like gri gris.
as for paying out slack, i had to give my partner slack when he was re-clipping. Not sure what people's views are on re-clipping that back wall, i personally think it's a great idea, and hardrock should do it with that large overhang, so people donít hit the glass. ( also sort of sick of seeing teenage boys dangling there like idiots giggling at each other and complaining of their nuts)
