More information:
I'm pretty much a recreational climber--It's all about having a good time. I've been climbing for about 16 years now, but lately my skills have gotten a wee bit rusty (full-time work and school will do that to a person). I used to rate my climbing skills much higher, but these days I try to keep it real. I moved to Reno about two years ago with my wife, Cassie. Life is about as sweet as it can be!

Notice the rope configuration: the climber is on a rope that is anchored to a tree and clipped to a crucial bolt (clipped while on rappel). Rope then runs through the spire tip anchors and up to another tree. By untying the knot at the tree on the upper line, the ropes can be pulled through and retrieved.  Looking back to the Spire tip while making the traverse.  Jugging up to Salathe Ledge trailing the rap line for setting up the tyrolean traverse.  Sikkim trek map.  Kanchendzonga massif locator map.
