I was actually expecting something bigger, NH style.

Actually, I am glad that the guy removed the block of his dangerous position, but more thankfull to the guy who attach the block to avoid an accident

^ I am using my context clues but I can't figure out the meaning of the 1st half of Lucky's sentence... could someone explain sil vous plait?

i agree....

i guess i'd give him style points for doing it "on-lead, ground-up," but i didn't see a pry bar anywhere.

a "classic" trundle always requires at least a 3ft pry bar (i read that in "Mountaineering Freedom of the Hills, 1st edition.)

and the trundled rock ought to be at least the size of a grand piano...

pragmatic: (adj) dealing with the problems that exist in a specific situation in a reasonable and logical way instead of depending on ideas and theories.

Last year, while on the route, Zebby and Diana probably regarded the block too puny to be worth trundling:)
Having been on Canon and all that :) :)

Two of them together probably weren't strong enough to move it.
