Hey Wall eye-

Must have been around '84. Fish and I just topped out on Iron Hawk, Coz and Cory on Zodiac, I think(?). Fun time.

I never gave rope-braiding much thought until I saw a bit about how it's done, interesting machines.

Post more photos sometime from the inside of the rope factory? Or the rig where you break them?

No pics of test machines at the moment. I'd like to get a high speed camera sometime to capture ropes at the moment of break.

Here's the results of a few hours of work on Largo's anchor book.

Here's some dudes demonstrating how not to locate a belay to avoid falling ice. One of the belayers took a direct hit moments after the photo. Not too pretty.

Broken biners, an unnerving sight. I didn't know you were busting those up too for the anchors book. Or were they just collateral damage?

Yes, collateral damage. A couple of them got hit by the mass and sheared in half (not in the photo). An expensive load cell also bit the dust.

That mixed lead looks exciting.

Was it Andy Ross a few pics back?
