This should probably come with an PG rating.....

Gents, Ladies:

Which route would be the best suited for Wall Love?

Is it best to ravage your lover on a ledge?
Would a hunging stance be ever so exciting?

Would it be better for one to face the wall, the other to face the void?

Any specific harness best suited for this making of Wall Love?
Perhaps different harnesses for the variety of genders?
(I hear they have 5 genders in Thailand - an established climbing destination)

Would a climbing party of three be better? Then the one drawing the shortest straw can assumedly belay?




:safe:

I would go for the ledge, somewhere with a magnificent view and sunset to top it off. No awkward straps and uncomfortable gymnastics :thumright

Me, I don't have to worry about who, when, where, what, how, "I have a head ache honey" or any of that !!!
Us solo climbers look after our selves, and I don't have to cuddle afterwards
:oops:

The German spoof is all well and good but I think Hann has raised a fair topic here.

I think the location (ledge, hanging stance etc) would have to depend on the type of rock as well as the personal preferences of the two or three climbers involved. Personally, I would take it up a notch and try get some on lead, but that's just me.

I had a look at the Petzl 8003 full body harness, it definitely seems best suited to the job. With a traditional sit harness the waist belt and tie in points are a lot lower than on the full body harness from Petzl and often get in the way of those advanced positions.

On the harness's page on Petzl's website I noticed there was a link to a PDF on "Tips for Protecting Your Equipment", some knowledge that could come in handy when one is getting down in the vertical world, we all know that there's nothing worse than getting you nuts stuck in a crack. There are also some handy tips on prolonging the usable lifespan of your equipment

Check out the first paragraph from the PDF.
