Always have the stronger partner carry the pack.  Put rocks in it if they're too strong.  Sandra follows the 2nd pitch.

Love it! What kind of BD pack is that? It looks a little bigger than the Bullet. I do the rock trick, too. Always put a decoy rock at the top, and the real lead at the bottom... :)

Looks like the Hollowpoint.

I believe you are correct John. I love the pack for routes here in Red Rocks and beyond. A pretty simple pack with few frills or extra crap.

I like that rock trick myself--in fact one time we snuck a bowling ball into a dude's pack before a long approach.

While climbing long routes, however, I believe each climber should carry his own small pack rather than have the second carry a heavier one.

I agree, it's best to each carry a smaller pack. But that means it's also best to put more smaller rocks in your partner's smaller pack when given the chance.
