Terrific photo, Sean. Although the climb is very short, doesn't that create a lot of rope drag?

no noticeable drag, placing two slung pieces up the crack; rest of toted gear used for topside anchor. not much rope abrasion from the seconding either, since most wouldn't fall off the hole before threading through

Silly climbing with the rack on while going through the porthole, way better to grab the rack after you get through the hole. Because you can sit on your butt all day there and get it handed to ya.

Why not hang it from a longer sling and then pull the rack up to you when your sitting in the hole?

there's a big gap in btwn the belaying ledge and the visible inside traverse before reaching out to the hole. it's really not that hard to shoulder sling the cams like normal, put that through the hole first, then thread body thru
