It looks like he is solo top rope aiding on bolts, using only backup knots? hahaha. As for the "midnight turbo aiding"... I highly doubt it was anything near it.

as much as I like aid climbing, that sounds really boring, and not very educational.

NO HELMET?!
My recent aid whipper was upside down, as many are when aid climbing.... you'd better get a lid on your melon.

He's on top rope. Besides, we all know Majid's head is thick enough to hold up to it. Laugh

I know he's on toprope, but he is the Safety Police, and is being a bad example to us young impressionable folks - climbing solo at night without a helmet! Yikes! Laugh

This is on the Bisetoon wall in Iran. I was second climber and third asked me to fix/belay a line for the third and first took this shot. After i looked at it , I am like what the heck was he doing. I could not see the end of the rope other than short fig 8 every few feet or so.
