I linked the 11th with the 12th traversing pitch. On the 12th I only clipped fixed gear and one or two of my own because 1: the second could lower out on the preexisting gear and 2: to lower rope drag because I was linking. I found this to not be too scary and it worked quite well. Seems to me that if placing a lot of gear the second would have to back lead and if not linking, hauling would be a PAIN. Although, the rope drag that was there made the hook moves at the end of the pitch quite exciting. Aug 25, 2008
