    This.

    I guess he was just prudent enough to perfectly secure himself between his two tie-in points. Beranek always emphasized the prudence of wrapping up the running end of your climb line, and keeping it on your saddle for the extreme, scary stuff. Betcha that's what he did. My hat's off fer shure.

    Nah, I think I see his line trailing down from him.

    Lots of low cuts on these trees... one high one to shorten the fall and a bunch were above the flare, just not much above ...

    Amazing that given an almost 340 degree of free land to fall it on, she managed to hit the sole obstacle.

    But then I did know an old but not very good faller, who managed to hang the second last doug fir in a clear cut up in the last one.
