Comments: Um, yeah, the sleeping bag. It was an early attempt to figure out a reasonable way to carry the belay jacket (DAS parka). It was a cold day, so both of us were carrying jackets - a bit odd to have the leader bring one up, I suppose, but hey, maybe it would have saved my tailbone in a certain kind of fall....
