I really enjoyed that too. There was some comfy looking moss on at least one of the climbs too which might have softened a fall!

I noticed that at least 4 or 5 times, the climbers turfed their remaining gear 2/3 or 3/4 into the climb, clipping it onto their final piece of gear (it appeared to for the last thin section on the relevant climbs which presumably means there was not much gear).

In at least one case, the climber placed several cams, clipped her gear onto a sling attached to the cams and then climbed up a little further and clipped a piton and then went for broke.

I have not seen this done before, particularly on trad stuff (and stuff which these guys were mainly doing onsight/flash).

I am assuming it was either:

(a) because there really was no gear and the fall was otherwise safe - ie high);

(b) to lose some weight for the final fingery bits;

(c) to make them commit; or

(d) a bit of everything.

Has anyone else seen/heard of this (particularly for trad onsights/flashes) and got any suggestions beyond this..?

Cheers

Adrian
