    I didn't. He'd just get pissed off for some reason if he knew about it.

    This was a big class. 15 students. Luckily we had the NC legend David Walker down helping teach so it ran really smooth. The bright sun and 90+ degree temps made it nice also instead of having to wear goretex rain gear!

    Using a Petzl GriGri connected to the bumper to lower students after they've climbed to the top on prusik cords. This was their first climb and we hadn't taught them how to changeover to rappel at this stage. 9th picture form the top is the other end of the ropes.
