There were 4 guys gang-roping Cosmosis at Bell Buttress this weekend. 1 belayer and 3 guys climbing on the same rope at the same time. Once all three climbers got to the top, the belayer started climbing on what is left of the rope while another guy rapped on the other end of the rope. What a clusterf***!!

Is that frowned upon?

I agree that being shown on the ground how to do it is the way to go. That said, I just kinda climbed up and figured it out when I got there. Then again, my partner and I learned how to toprope and then lead with the trial and error method...Not recommended


I learned the same way. No bueno. I teach on the ground, usually in a garage, or at a gym. Anyplace that I can simulate an anchor. I also require the people I teach to be able to tie a figure8 with their eyes closed before I will take them climbing.

I guess I'm the one that revived it. Apparently, I didn't notice that it was an old thread.


I just realized that old threads stay on the first page of this forum for years. Not much traffic in here, I guess.

I definitely wasn't criticizing, Justin - a useful topic, no doubt.
