Vertigo

December 9, 2015

So a few rock climbers came down to Okayama to take a shot at Karachi. An unforgiving climbing route that only a handful of people(7 to be exact) have been able to climb. We were asked to document it and of course we jumped at the chance.

The plan was to suspend Trevor above the wall so he could photograph from above and close to the overhang section of Karachi. To do this he had to use an ascender to climb up a single rope. Once at optimum height he would attach a second anchor rope to stop him from spinning or give him the ability to move around a bit.

This is not so difficult. This is not so difficult.

Apparently it is tiring work going up a rope!

It was much harder work than anticipated! It was much harder work than anticipated!
