How Did Fabio Wibmer Ride That Dam Wall?
@atrokz: yeah I'm sure this will work but there is a better much safer way. also maybe I'm over thinking it, but the fact that the top of the rail is above his waist the direction of the pull from the rope in the event of a fall would be upwards compared to someone falling into a hole on a glacier where the rope would be pulling you downwards where you have to fall to the ground to self arrest. anyways good discussion! food for thought.

@atrokz: I understand what your saying, I climb too and for many years. in the event of a fall, big man attached to the rope is most definitely an anchor. and when he has to rescue the biker he will most definitely have to build an anchor and haul system to rescue the biker Given the circumstance a directional anchor mounted to a moving vehicle and essentially putting the biker on top rope would've been the right thing to do IMO.

This should be posted up on climbing.com's Unbelayvable: SCARY (AND TRUE) TALES FROM A CRAG(DAM) NEAR YOU. http://www.climbing.com/news/unbelayvable-downleading/ This is just Bad belaying/ anchor techniques. and is NOT the correct way to belay someone. People can get seriously injured if they chose to follow this example. Would this belay hold in a fall situation ..."probably" but with a little more effort it could've been set up much better and safer. For future reference a moving truck or car set up with a directional anchor and the guy holds a Grigri to put the biker on belay would've been the way to do it. Basically the same way you would set up a top rope route. Im assuming bothe of you were properly tied into a harness. This would also allow for more rope to be paid out and in the event of a fall it would absorb more of the impact and be safer. Also I hope you inspected that rail for any sharp edges!!!

How Damper Oil Flow Is Controlled - Video
Do you know or where we can find what the stock shim stacks are for the Rockshox Monarch Plus (2014-2016) ? Looking for the difference between the L and M compression stacks. Would like to change the compression from Medium to Low. I Checked the SRAM/Rock Shox spare parts catalog and they do have the tune assembly part number but dont list the washer sizes that make up the stack. I think it would be helpful to know what the differences are between the L,M,H reb/comp shimstack sizes, could be used as a baseline/guide when custom tuning -THANKS!
