When you get to the anchors, pull up the remaining rope left and tie it off to the anchor. Grab your grigri and start self belaying yourself as you continue climbing. Have a backup knot.

When your partner gets to the anchor. Stop, get back on belay and tag the rest of the rack up and continue.

That's the quick and dirty explanation.

This is a novel auto blocking belay device.  I think it works quite well, depending on rope thickness and sheath quality, it belays very smooth.  Great to lower with.  You gotta love over engineering.  $3 at a gear swap!
Get the movie "To the Limit" (Am Limit), it's on Netflix. Watch the Huber brothers do it up El Cap. It's rediculous. How can anyone climb that fast?

Nordwand, made me want to run out to a vertical cliff and do a Dulfersitz rappel, then I realized I could die.

To the Limit is on instant play and I plan on watching it this evening.
I was recommended yesterday to watch 180 degrees south, the story about Yvon C going down to Patagonia. Also on instant play.

North Face sucked. Just watched it - the only saving grace was the great footage of the Eiger in storm.

180 south is a great flick, but not a great climbing flick. There's essentially no climbing in the movie so just manage expectations before you see it. Everything Chouinard says is gold in it too.
