Alright, I understand how a person would negotiate something like the fourth pitch of Tangerine Trip, i.e. simply aiding downward.
My question pertains to bailing off really steep terrain. Some Supertopos say "down-aiding" is required for retreat.
How would you cat's go about this? Would you keep yourself on repell as you aided downward, or would you full-on lead the pitch in reverse?
Can anyone offer up their epics brought on by fleeing the super-steep?
