Rock Climbing Photos : Big Wall : Running It Out

Running It Out

Running It Out

I'm off the couch, and running out P9 of the Excalibur. It was my fourth lead on the wall, after 18+ years on the couch. I crack jugged this entire pitch, using Valley Giant cams. PTPP got nervous and yelled for me to put in some pro, so I did: the one piece you see, and another about 40 feet higher. I kept the cams daisied to my harness, and just slid them up. A more conservative method would use an extra cam or two. No need to top step when you're crack jugging. I duct-taped my aiders to my feet. On a left leaning crack like this, keep your lower piece to the right. Photo by Pass the Pitons Pete.
