Well done Jacob, three ropes on the route is an intersting way of trying to stop the swing.
he looks like a spider building a web speeded up :)

Looks to me like he used it to protect the first section of roof, but jettisoned it so he didn't have rope drag towards the end. Nowt to do with the swing I reckon.

Great eye for a line - how many top climbers must have climbed the other routes there! Good work.
Good man. Great stuff. I enjoyed watching that.
Wow, great effort. He made the first half looks so easy. The second half looks very hard indeed.
