Totem Pole accident 15-Jul-2020 At 2:22:08 PM Grinder
I'd forgotten how much of a vertical drop it was - terrifying to think of someone sliding down that.

GFDONC, I'm pretty sure we had four ropes and the last person was lowered using the second set of two. I'm not sure that you would be at the bottom of the pendulum by the time you got to the end of a doubled 60m - and you really would want to be sure. I remember being very close to the mainland side by the time we bottomed out.

If you only had three ropes, I think it would be safer to fix the rap rope to the side of the tyrollean rope that is going to be pulled (ie the knot side). The ends on the mainland side would be fixed of course, so you didn't just pull them through.

BTW can anyone say where the lower anchors are on the Candlestick side. It looks like they should be on the obvious ledge directly opposite, but we couldn't see them from where we were.
