That would be a great upside down did you get that sling under your leg?

horrible rope management.

I agree with joshf; how did he even manage to get his leg so hopelessly behind the rope? It would seem that you would have to try really hard to get it there. Good thing he has a helmet on...oh wait.

On closer inspection, it looks to me like he has a really long tail on his knot (~18"), and that is what we are seeing between his legs. If you look close you will notice a yellow dot which I assume is the rope end, and its clear that this strand is not running through the biner that's clipped to the highest sling. I can't tell where the sharp end of the rope is, but I would guess, considering the sling, that it is running outside his leg.

...and I see plenty of feet.

How's that for too much free time?

looks to me like the rope and the tail are both on the inside of his leg, and that the sling is under his leg.

Hey guys, sorry to dissapoint, but its the tail of the eight knot between my legs. No sling no horrible rope mangement.
