January 26 seemed wet enough for the Lost Coz traverse. After years of wondering what the Vulcan's Artery looked like up close, it was super cool to be able to climb across it. Thank you, Chief, for putting that up!

(BTW, reconsidered my safety system after this. I added a prussik to take the slack out of the system and decrease the chances of taking a high-factor fall on a knotted sling.)

Good to see Big Mike and Pixel enjoying the Coz Way (aka The Lost Coz).
Still very much a project in the works that will probably tidy up into a bitchin' adventure hike if someone doesn't steal all my gear again.

Regarding lanyards, I've come to appreciate how dangerous my accepted choices have been over the decades and the fact is, the impact forces on your average looped daisy chain are potentially horrendous.

I now run 2 meters of 10mm dynamic on a Gri Gri Plus in the top rope setting to prevent slack from falling through the device the way the older Gri Gri's allowed.
This allows me to minimize slack and free fall potential and the Gri Gri Plus will limit the impact force to 4kn ish similar to an E4 shock pack.

I run a pair of them when clambering in the high steel at work and think of Cozzy every time I step out of a lift into the perms.

^^^^^^^^^That can't be Big Mike. He promised earlier on this thread that he would always wear a helmet. If you can't trust Big Mike..........

Looks to me more like one of Castro's younger relatives.
