Wow! Very creative...nice job on the FA Santa...are those the Nomics you're using the ones I asked for? Question...why would Santa need to clip into a Screamer?

Santa needs to clip that screamer cause unlike the typical rope strings of christmas lights have a very low elongation resulting in a pretty high fall factor. Plus they were made cheaply in a factory in china and the quality control isn't that great.
The climber is actually Gary Burns and the location is Pitchoff Right @ cascade pass.
Just curious if anybody happened to see us up there the night before thanksgiving shooting this.
I was trying to imagine what it might have looked like to people driving through the pass looking up and seeing all these xmas lights dangling from the cliff. They were certainly honking and such.

Please ignore Cramps silly explanation. He has tried to take the magic out of Christmas. Sure it sounds good, just a couple of climbers having fun dressed up as Santa, but where are they going to plug those lights in? They can't! What we have here is clearly an example of Santa Magic!

That's Father Christmas to you, Richard.


That picture is awesome. It would make the ultimate Christmas card for the parties involved.
