Sorry to post this if this info is posted elsewhere, but are you able to rap the first four pitches of Triassic with a single 80? I know, I know, I should man up and top it out but Saturday my buddy and I only have a half day to climb...

Would one be able to do some swinging nonsense over to Sand Felipe or something else I might be missing?

Any and all info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I would imagine that it would be possible to rap from 3 to 2 with an 80 then move over onto Sand Felipe's lower anchors. No swinging really necessary.

Awesome, thanks for the reply. Just got my hands on an 80 so am giddy to use it [I despise dragging two ropes up free routes, just the 'Merican in me and my disdain for twins/doubles :) ]

Anyone 100% on this?

Dude, I dont know. That long pitch above the crux is long enough I'm just not sure you could get down with a single 80m- Handren calls it 160', this site calls it 150'. You can go about 135', maybe 140' with a single 80m assuming rope stretch and a long cut on the line....it'll be damn close, but if its 160', you're hosed.

I'd just take a 60m and top out if you dont want to drag the extra rope. If you really want to use the 80m, go up the Velvet wall, i know you can rap that with an 80m line.
