And this is what we call a clusterfuck...

(Sorry for the big file size. I don't currently have software to shrink it.)

This was the scene at the GT Ledge Minty Rap Station on a gorgeous Saturday in August last summer. I was taking a non-climbing cousin of mine up Beginner's Delight.

You guys part of some cult?

Or just got a really good deal on red helmets?

Pass the Kool Aid....

I would have expected the guide to notice that one guy has his helmet on backwards (headlamp clip is in the back).

Umm... Yeah, the 3 people on the right are a guide (closest to cliff edge) and his two clients. That's pretty funny, I didn't notice that the helmet was on backwards till just now. That musta been uncomfortable.

The guy on the left is me... And I assume perhaps the one Pitfall thinks is wearing a sweatervest... No comment on that.

There's 3 more people at the belay that you can't see in this pic. There's a party of 2 off to the left who climbed Minty and were on their way down. And there's my cousin who is attached to the purple cordalette.

As noted a long time ago in a different thread, a party of 2 climbed BD right behind us and beat us back to our packs by walking off to the UberFall. Go figure.

The helmet was not on backward. That's how HB helmet looks. The clips are on both front and back end of the helmet. Notice how the straps fit nicely on him?

you can also see the rear adjustment strap sticking out in the back. He's wearing it correctly.
