Can you belay a TR from the ground with a 60m rope or do you have to belay from the top? Nov 1, 2011

Climbed this area for the first time 11/24/18. Its a fun area but make sure you bring lots of cordage, long slings, and some pro to make top anchors. There are some anchors, but less as you are on climbers right. Bring a 70 meter rope if you want to top rope. I had a 60 and it barely reached the ground. I also had two lengths of cord, one was 30 feet, the othe was 50 feet. Also had long dynema slings. I used all of it to create a three point top anchor. Nov 24, 2018
