    Very generous, Jaime. Put me on the list, and I'll promise to turn it around without undue delay. But I say send it to Dave first, if he's willing.

    Interesting how a limited gene pool and a limited labor force seem to be so closely related.

    Well, I surely would love to try out such a beautiful piece of climbing art but geez, my opinions on such things is no better than that of the rest of you guys. I am just an old climber enjoying what these new tools bring to our trade. There are lots of better and smarter climbers in the house and I always listen and learn from their posts. Constantly amazed at what I don't know.

    And you are a humble man as well. I value any and all input. having stared at it and thought about how to accomplish aspects of the design, it becomes easy to loose sight of the forest for the trees as it were. i can never look at it as a first impression, but you guys certainly can. i think by the end of the week i will have a unit ready to go. At the gtg i promised Bob stewert first go, and Cursedvoyce never got the chance to play with it. Dave and Burnham i would love to hear from. on down the list in order of request here is as good a system as any. i should even be able to put together a second and maybe a third unit. this is exciting!

    Looking at it again, it really is gorgeous.

    I was wondering, I see the cam that grabs the rope, how do you release it to descend?
