I used this rope on Sunday coming down. I was third ( and last ;-) in our party to get there and was surprised to see them down climbing on a rope when I got there.
s it was long since dark when we arrived, at first I thought it might be helpful. But the rope, to me, was not in the best of shape and the knots were very small if you have climbing gloves on, read - hard to hold. Kinda zoning anyway, and thinking about beers and burgers at the Moat, I had already clipped my axe to my harness and begun descent when I realized it would been better to just down climb as usual.
I thought it kinda low end for a "guided" setup, more like some "regular" folks decided to put it up. Rope ethics notwithstanding, I don't think it will be there long, regardless.
Yeah, not on board with the need for fixed ropes on Lion's Head Winter... although, I have been fortunate enough to never have been waiting any more than a few minutes to get by other parties either....
