Thought it might be nice to share unique tricks that can only be learned from the best climbing source in the world: YouTube.

Today I learned that you should not expect to haul 12 people tied into one rope with a 3:1 system. The maximum amount of people you can haul up a cliff at one time with a 3:1 system is 4 people, and the maximum amount of people you can haul with a 5:1 system is 2 people. Who knew!
