    - Loki,

    "Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.
    Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.
    The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy,
    while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn."
    John Muir

    This is how I go now as well. NO chance of the whoopie coming 'over the toggle'.

    Very quick, very secure, and always a good idea to have a couple of climbing rated 'biners with you anyway.
