Comments: Not sure why people always comment about the rope behind the leg on here. The person in the picture is not going to remove their leg from behind the rope no matter how many people comment on it.

The first one needs to be stick clipped (~12 feet up), and the second one can't be clipped until you reach the ledge (~20 feet up), risking groundfall if you fall going for it. And they are out of reach if you are climbing the... more >>
