perfect example of how not to do it. though it is stanage and it wouldnt be a days climbing there if the circus wasnt in town :D

Is this a common mistake with double ropes? I rarely use them, just trying to figure out how exactly it happens. Oh and what's going on with the tail left after tying in!?

The shiny gear, low grade and extra long rope ends complete the story. I only wish I could keep up the newbies learning mantra, instead of becoming more complacent than I'd like.

Low grade? It's HVS.

Like the comments... does the phrase 'we all had to start somewhere' ring a bell?

As in: start by learning a few basics?

Clip rope A to crab B, then clip rope B to crab C, then E, F, H but not G, repeat with other rope.......

Apologies for the low grade comment Mutl3y. The only explanation I can offer is that the link above references a Mod.
