Quarries taught me SOO much about staying locked onto holds, did a ton of stuff there unroped, John you prolly recall. Karl knew about some, Paul Duval as well, I miss them both. Ladder Line probably the one with biggest "poor outcome potential" I did, but with poor style. I talked to Karl about it. I had been running laps on it with jumars, then thought WTF I haven't fallen off this the last 50 times I've climbed it. So rapped down, and started up, with my fixed line to the side. Direct start, all good, then at the layback move midway, my left foot greased. just as I was about to accelerate downwards, I snatched my line with my right hand. Stopped right there.
Went back about a month later, and went up. Had to. It was haunting me.
