Top rope aid practice? ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
I understand where LL is coming from on this one a bit. Hop on a low traveled crack and have at it. I don't understand the reason for a top-rope though. I mean you have a piece every body length that you can assess without pumping out. A day of aid climbing really helped me with my gear placement. A buddy of mine has an even better idea. He takes people to a really easy crack climb that is pretty short and has them aid it. Then he takes away the pieces they used and has them aid it again with what remains. He repeats this until the rack is used up. And, you can work on your systems on something you can just climb if need-be. But don't waste nice weather doing this stuff. Go out on a damp/raining day. Plus, you don't have to worry about taking 3 hours on a more popular route. Just my $.02
Of course, it takes a while with Ben since his rack is big enough to aid 10 rope lengths without using the same piece twice...... And he can find any piece he wants on it blindfolded.
it's not that complicated after a few drinks
