General Climbing / Re: Let's sharpen up our safety techniques (horrifying)

y'all are missing the point completely. This is deep satire. From the weird shit on her helmet to the 'is this the approach?' when the climb is 100' off the trail to the constant 'do you see any pro?' when she is surrounded by placements to the hysterical discussion of moths 'that's the biggest thing I ever saw.' (I wish I could remember the exact quote, but I'm not going to waste my time going back through it, but I was rolling on the floor) to the reasonably attractive women with butt ugly rednecks (this is where my mind wanders these days). It's a brilliant spoof, Luke is grinding his teeth because it's an order of magnitude beyond anything he has done. Thus far. But Yankees are kind of dense so it's probably wasted on NEClimbs.
That said, I said 'screw it, I get it' about 7 min. into P2, so I've probably missed much more brilliance. Besides, I've seen this movie before many times at Sandrock complete with the accents.

Files only-- danger of overheating & damaging pick temper with a grinder!

The long lost "3rd Allman brother" belaying at the end isn't real confidence inspiring.

Wow. I think we should start a fund to send Luke down there to help them out. He needs a good cape though.
LOL.  +1!!  And a mask like The Lone Ranger's.

Wow, After investing so much time watching, it was very disappointing not to see them pitch to their death on the final simul-rap.>:D
That was a let down for me too.
I can't say I remember I have ever done a simul-rap.  I have been party to a simul-lower tho'.  Eric is particularly proud of this feat (being the lowerer).  :)

Speaking of Heuristics, about a year ago, LL posted this NOLS 2002 article:
Evidence of Heuristic Traps in Recreational Avalanche Accidents
http://www.snowpit.com/articles/traps%20reprint.pdf

heuristic "have influenced the decisions of avalanche victims".

we most considered that it is a decision; good or bad...is the results.
