Don't know why it posted 5 times... there's only one picture. Notice how closely the two are tied in together. And, there was no true "Cowtail", i.e. - she was hanging directly off his harness.

I don't have pictures of the actual cutting of the rope. Perhaps someone would go up and re-create for the cameras?

So what I saw, was the guy in the red shirt, to her right as she was hanging, and he must have built an anchor. But, webbing? Webbing? And, party A's leader could rig a Z pulley but couldn't lower them?

(speechless)

ps - thanks, Eric. Much appreciated.

As the person climbing under said screaming train wreck I can attest to the fact that E's story is 100% true. I only caught glimpes of the fiasco as I was leading up but really wasn't paying enough attention to comprehend what was going on otherwise I would have stepped in. I saw the rope cutting incident unfold but didn't really understand what was happening until it was over. I assumed that party B was simply pulling her back on the climb which was a dumb solution but no where near as dumb as what really happened.

Again everything E said is true no embellishments, not that any are really required

what the hell is going on in that picture? oy vay.

did she factor two onto the sling, or did she hit the ledge before the sling could grab her?

That picture is as they were climbing up to the incident, before it happened. Team B had built an anchor underneath the roof, right before the crux, which she fell onto. She did NOT fall onto the GT.

zowie. Party "a" walked down next us on the talus, and I heard the girl say something about cutting ropes, but i was sure I couldn't have heard that right...

Excellent picture!

how surreal.
