HA ! Try this one- In the '80's Charles Cole (owner of 5.10) was trying the second ascent of Space , an A5 on El Cap, solo. He was reaching up to clip the anchors on P12 and fell. He ripped THE WHOLE pitch ! 140' and took a 300' er.
Of course being solo on an overhanging wall, the entire rack came down and smacked him in the face. THEN he had to jug the pitch and re- lead it 'cause there was no rappeling off.

How about a rickshaw for approaches ! ?  ??? Worth it I think. Maybe some Valley rats would earn some cash for a ride up to half Dome ?

I went over backwards on a bar stool once and got shut off. The tarbender would not believe that it was only my 2nd beer no matter how much I begged. Had to finish up down the street at a bar that knew me better.
