"BZZZZZZZZTTTT" I thought that was a good guess. It's similar. Post a pic of BBBW just for kicks.

No pics of BBBW available.... You've seen my slide storage system (two large boxes).... I found all these looking for a slide of Roy Wonder and Swiss Michi from 1982. Damn... never did find it.

We tried that setup back in '76 on this TR route ("Fear of Flying") the first time we got on it because we were afraid of the trees. First try Doug Drewes cuts right off the bat rocketing our bottom belayer, Doug Allen, out from behind a big rock and into space too. I was providing the TR belay and once they were both flying I shot about 30 feet into space with a hip belay dumping them into the shallow ravine below the climb. It was a real Keystone Cops affair and was the only time we tried a bottom belay on it. After that we just resolved ourselves to not falling before 2/3's of the way up where you become safe from the trees. A few years after Jim Tangen-Foster and I nabbed it a fellow did cut on it down low, making it out through the trees, but breaking his back against the tree we were worried about on the ride back in.

Is that me!!! J/K...My first pair of shoes where Boreal Fires. That guy is just belaying straight off the anchor. And on the other pic we used to set up that sort of thing for testing Ice screws in Vail. I was only 18 and everyone else was at least 10 years older then me...so...they would make me the guinea pig and have me climb as high as i could and just let go of my ice tools and see how far one could fall and still not break the ice screws.

Gotta tape up for that wide stuff. My hands are skinny and boney with very soft girlie skin. I am jealous of those guys like Greg (on SAR) who gets callouses on the back of his meatie paws.

Jaybro...what offwith in Vedawoo? Blow it up a little and i will tell you.
