I top roped and solo climbed about a dozen rocks with a chest harness, hand tied seat harness and a Jumar ascendar tied between them as a self arrest. Used my day pack to give some weight to the bottom of the rope ... it worked! Got to do what you got to do when you don't have a climbing partner!
Only made two trips so it was nice to see your video ... thanks for sharing.
Haha no kidding? Sounds like a primitive rope soloing set up. Very inventive! I imagine in a few years when construction is done and the place is maintained that it will be a really nice place to visit. I'm glad you enjoyed.
