Joe taking 12 meter whipper whilst clipping the chains on Wadcutter whilst climbing at Torrent Falls in Red River Gorge Ky. Note how the belayer is pulled a good 3 metres off the ground!
clipping the chains
Meh, been there, done that, got the t-shirt, hit the ground, stood up, had a laugh. Whippers are fun and shouldn’t be feared
Haha! Alan, clicking on this link I half expected a clip of you.
