Topic - Top rope leading, the way ahead.

SCrossley on 27 Oct 2013
This weekend I and others have tested a new technique which we call "Top rope leading" this involves placing a nut with a Clip Stick, only nuts at the moment but we are working on placing Cams hopefully with BMC funding.
Once the nut is placed we then clip with a quick draw and the rope. We believe that this is the ultimate development of British Trad climbing, preserving the ethic of leader place protection whilst totally eliminating risk. At the moment we see it being of more use on single pitch routes but hope that with time and a long enough clipstick routes such as Indian Face and Agags Groove could be possible, with no risk to the climber. Exciting times.
