Near Miss - Abseiling on tail of ropes. 3-Feb-2016 At 12:08:36 PM Old_man
> still 100m up from the ground

There may also be a 'bottom of big wall' factor when the ground seems so close compared to what's above that there's no danger. Once coming down off a ledge about 100m up El Cap, we abseiled down an old fixed rope with half its mantel gone and furry insides hanging out, because there didn't seem far to go. Afterwards you shake your head and say, 'Did I really do that?'
