but wait

If you are trying to explain the climbing procedures thought the king swing section to an average climber who has never seen the wall but want to understand the technique, how would you explain it?

you get a rope.. secure it to the bolts... lower off to the white bands or so.. run east.. then run harder to the west... Grab a corner at the top of your penji... done!

you have to run really hard and leap the gap in the middle, then run again and grab the slopers.

perhaps the funnest thing I have done on the Captain.

Tons of photos and no explanation so there I go again;

I need to know the followings on the photo first;

1- *Location of Boot Flake
*Location of pitch 16 anchor
*Location of pitch 17 anchor
*Location of Eagle Ledge

2- The standard lowering process before pendulum and please try to explain it to someone who has not seen the wall but need to understand it without looking at a photo.

Thanks

It's a waste of time. Nothing needs to described with words or fotos.

The king swing reveals itself when you arrive.
