i belayed the coach (jason lakey) on separate reality this past november. it was exactly a year and a day after his fall on leaning tower where he shattered his knee. i thought it was a pretty proud send after a year of several surgeries and barely being able to walk for a good part of the year. that guy has some determination.

Wow. What a line. They don't get much better. I guess people PP the G cuz it sux to clean if ur working it? Or is the gear hard to place? Looks pretty straightforward but I know nothing. Awesome thread too, a lot of really cool history & posts, this is the stuff.

I do not mean to be off topic or hijack the thread, but zBrown, in the US, one of the primary causes of hepatocellular carcinoma - which is what Castaneda is said to have died from - is alcoholism and cirrohsis of the liver.

My brother Mac, who gave up drinking after cirrohsis of the liver, though he still was one of the best winemakers in the US if not abroad (by peer recognition and god himself, Robert Parker), he developed hepatocellular cancer that took him in less than a week (diagnosed on Tuesday passed away on Friday, May 18). Alcoholism is an industrial hazard in the wine industry.

He still could make great wine, you don't need to swallow, just spit out. Afterwards, my oldest brother Casey (chairman of the Northern California Teamsters Substance Abuse Committee) told me that people who have had cirrohsis of the liver have a 34 times greater chance of developing liver cancer.

Back to Separate Reality, I couldn't even follow that thing, more less lead.

I hadn't seen that solo vid of Zak before. Nice! Very smooth and controlled.

Tried reading this whole thread but it goes pretty OT.

I see pre placed gear on most videos/pics. Any beta on placing the gear? It's not obvious to me.
Do we need to bring a separate rap line to jug out incase we don't send?

Thanks for the beta if your willing to share.

You can gear it from solid hand jams with the exception of your last piece, then place the final cam from a tight hand jam and go.

Yes, leave a line to get out. It might make your life easier.
