This is me and Damian on the other side getting the line across yosemite falls. It took 2+ hours to get it up. The wind was pulling on the line with it felt like 40 lbs at times. Damian and George were on one side while Jeff and I were on the other and we were whipping it up and over the small trees, then they would rappel off the larger trees and pass it in front. We had to do this for about 150 yards. and then down to the anchor not to mention while climbing 3rd or 4th class slab while wearing several hundred feet of webbing in a haul bag, it was awesome. Alex Mason tied it off and Damian rappelled down, set the anchor, monkey crawled back over across the line with little tension, and then put 3,000lbs of force on the line using a dynamometer. by then it got too dark to walk the line :(
