Wow, cool photos Todd. ( but as usual you haven't Identified the climbs)
At what level does Tyler currently climb?
That's gotta pose some interesting crack technique adaptions.

Yeah, I guess he can just ball up a lot of tape as well. Interesting.

I'd like to see him in action.

How does Tyler use his right arm to handle gear when he leads?

Seems like the climbing is the easy part and messing with the gear and the clips is the hard part;..especially the right hand bolt clips and right leaning cracks......the right hand does not handle gear;..there IS no right hand.......the "nub" holds on, while the left hand does it all;..........

the right hand does not handle gear;..there IS no right hand.......the "nub" holds on, while the left hand does it all

Right. I guess what I was thinking was the possibility that he might use his right arm to transfer longer slings with pro from around his neck to his left hand which would be busy holding on until the sling can be in a position to have the pro placed. Once the pro is placed he is then free to use both arms to hold on. Next , when he is stable again, he uses his left hand to clip the rope to the sling.

Maybe I'm overthinking all of this.
