A  tip if your partner is a little squimish about following the opening traverse moves on p4.  <br>
Once you finish leading the pitch: Pull up all the rope and put your partner on belay like normal.  Untie and lower down your end of the rope.  Your partner can then tie in on a bite with a locker (that way they can ditch that rope after the traverse) and be on top rope for the first traverse, just like climbin on doubles. No giant pendulum, and one happy partner :) <br>

I was out on patrol, I figured I'd take a quick run up to Sunshine Wall and back, since there was a car in the lot (yours I'm guessing). Yeah, it was a chilly day for climbing but great for hiking up that hill. Jan 31, 2011

Where were you, Mike? Did you get out climbing, or just out on patrol? Kinda chily out yesterday. Jan 31, 2011

I saw you guys setting that up yesterday, and was initially perplexed. Then all became apparent. Nice lead by the way. Jan 31, 2011
