On Iron Hawk, I had ropes fixed from the beginning of the KB Traverse up to the top of the Spoon. 190 feet. I lowered the bags out on the haul line and then with my jugs on the lead line, ran along the ledge as far as I could and tried to jump out as far as I could. It was quite a swing!
Yeah, Mark. I don't think it's a very good idea at all - unless you can be sure to come lower than the bags. When I had my first multi-pitch solo adventure on Mordor Wall/Cathedral Ledge, I had lowered out the pig using the rest of the haul line. I had a separate lower-out line for myself (I had cleaned the pitch on rappel which was faster than doing the five separate lower outs), but the section of rope was too short, so I went off the grigri and went zooming towards the haul line, which was stretched out like re-bar and heading straight for my crotch. I took a hit on the inner thigh and spun around like a roulette wheel. If you do it from too far away, I bet it could take a limb right off.
All in all, one would have to surmise that I wasn't making very good judgements during that whole trip, to tell you the truth. I was glad to climb Shortest Straw with Cheyne soon after Iron Hawk to see that I hadn't totally lost that ability.
