I'm in on that. Marianne said Bridger is not allowed to do that yet but I bet he would try given a chance.

Holy.... Think I would have two ropes and someone else goes first! How in the world they figure out you would clear? Maybe dropped a heavy pack to see if it smacked the rocks?

first jumper wears a helmet?

Pretty simple pendulum so should not take rocket science to figure it out. Repeated falls make for a hard life for the climbing ropes. Granted light falls but probably should consider retiring them after a long day of swinging.

I wouldn't use climbing rope for that reason. Rappeling rope has less stretch (a good thing here!) and can take a lot of abuse.
