Wow that is really cool. I had no idea. So based on the first video, when the guy stood at the bottom of the rock in the second video he was spotting the climber? Do you wear a helmet? I am pretty sure I would. Thanks for linking to those videos. That was great.

There is some spotting, yes. There's also a crash pad below to fall on. Spotting is mostly to make sure you land on the crash pad.

Lotsa travel.

c&j: 135x1x10
pullups

fat loss seems to have stalled? Back to 182#

DC is definitely a city I don't mind walking in. Always something to look at. You sir are getting very light. Everything feeling good?
