Hey Chris,

I really liked the book. Harry gave it to me after he bought your auction item for my fundraiser. Thanks again for your donation.

One thing i didn't learn from the book that i really like is clipping a draw to my next piece before i get on it and then clipping my aider to the upper draw biner. This makes it easier for me to clip the rope to the piece if i want for protection, as i move by it with less cluterfvck.

Thanks again for your hard work.

I used your book a lot before successfully climbing the nose, first try.

I thought the book was great. I tried to do a minter mule, but an adjustable daisy is Sooo easy.

No book is as good as just getting on a wall, or a practice wall, to figure it all out.

The book chapter are (rightfully) segmented into component parts...leading, cleaning, jugging, hauling etc...That is remarkably helpful for learning each part, but there is no comprehensive text that pulls all these components together and relates the whole sequence. What is the most efficient sequence to put all these pieces together. A sort of mental checklist that covers the entire sequence. Just my 2 cents.
