The company we hired to rig this boulder, ZFX [more on them later] talked us into moving towards a four line system over the single line. Much better.

Also notice the pathetic chicken wire and plaster first attempts at boulder making. Not our finest hour. However, sometimes better ideas need to follow bad ideas…
