NICE! Glad to see pics. Saw you in the lot asking about the First Canine Ascent. My bet is you bagged it.

Now: can you post more detailed pics of that K9 harness rig?

Free ascent or hangdog?

Free Ascent. I use the Ruffwear Webmaster Harness and I use 6mm Prusik Cord to Re-enforce the 2 Belly Straps because I don't trust the plastic snap buckles.

I find it works best to tie yourself in ~10 feet from the end of the rope and tie the dog in to the end... If she has her own rope, she climbs far too fast and the Belayer cant keep up with her and there's a risk of getting her legs wrapped up in the rope.

Lady and the Tramp is next... The name sure fits.

Sweet! You should get a picture of her on Difficulties Be Damned, stemmed out with her front paws on opposing gastons.
