Ben ,
Given your propensity for adding a comment about a helmet to other's photos, I find this offensive. Where is the helmet?

Alas, he wears a helmet when leading, but not when rappelling. He's taken a 70 ft fall, a 50 footer, and numerous 40 footers, and walked away, but he does wear a helmet when he commutes on his bicycle. Do you email BD, Sterling, or Petzl every time you buy a piece of gear that carries a warning label that tells you that climbing is dangerous? Have you contacted your automobile manufacturer regarding that annoying sound your car makes when you haven't put on your seatbelt? It's a choice. It's out of concern for your health and safety that you're asked to put on a helmet...like mom asking if you ate your vegetables. Oh, yes, a propensity, but not for awhile, now. Peace.
