Perhaps you and the other climber are as talented as you say? I cannot say, your comments appear as though you are trying to earn fanfare. This isn't the type of dialogue I envisioned, especially from veteran climbers.

Lesson learned: Ropeless solo can be safe providing the tether is as dynamic and strong as a climbing rope or actually is a short piece of climbing rope. Building anchors and training this way is extremely slow and would never be viable on a multi-pitch true-aid climb because of time limitations.

I respect expert climbers and welcome constructive criticism.

Basically correct other than the fact that climbing simply is not safe.. Solo Aid climbing is a good time to fiddle around with gear and do rediculous stuff just for the hell of it. As in all climbing back stuff up where reasonably doable and make sure critical single failure points are bombproof. The biggest issue with aid is that it is a complex process and easy to make an rope belay just adds a big extra risk to the main one.. human error.

As far as the flak on this thread.. that's standard internet message board bs. Combined with your odd question which you probably knew the answer to anyway you got a double dose of sacasm and crap.. on top you got pissy about the very predictable responses.. sharks in bloody water ..

Yer gonna die!!
