John is such a bad A$$! What size shoes are those? Put that guy on some slab routes - that looks like some serious friction.

Great photo, thanks for the post

I like the way Largo is tied in to the end of the rope with a swami belt made of 2" tubular webbing. These hurt like "Hades" when you fell on them, and they had a way of keeping hangdogging to a minimum!
