A few years ago, I went up Coalpit with @carolinegleich and we cleaned out the absolute mess of random, tattered ropes that dotted various trees around The Waterfall that guards the exit of the Coalpit Headwall #skidescent. Most of the ropes were ancient and in tatters.
It was always my intention to return the following winter to replace the public handline so people wouldn't have to carry a rope to do this exit, since that pleasant situation had greeted me on all my previous visits. Unfortunately, Mother Winter didn't cooperate, and low elevation snow was scant the following two winters.
To the good, I carried in a rope and finally finished the job Tuesday. It was pretty apparent no one had been through that way this year. So, sorry to those souls like @brodyleven and @perpetualweekend who bothered to pass through during the extremely low tide. For everyone else who has been waiting for better conditions though, things are as they once were.
And that line didn't get there a moment too soon, either. From no tracks on Tuesday, to our visit Thursday, a half dozen people had already passed through. Including the @straightchuter, who has left behind MANY anchors that I've used while touring the #Wasatch. Glad I could return a favor for a change. (Though you can guess he had his own rope along, eh?) @skimo_co demonstrates: no harness required, either. #skimountaineering #publicservice #careforyourforest
