Rock climbing information needed!

Hey Guys, Do we have any rock climbers in our membership?  I need my very strong male character to throw a rope over a pipe, about fifteen feet high that is suspended from the ceiling.  He then needs to hoist himself up, stop at a midway point and be able to use his hands to disarm a bomb.   So the rope obviously has to be looped around his waist and some sort of pulley system (tied with knots, cause it's not something you would have in your pocket) available. So, is this at all possible - or…See More

Gaile Hughes replied to John Dishon's discussion Tom Cruise to play Jack Reacher
"Agree Stuart, Hugh Jackman or how about Jason Momoa, just needs a haircut - either, but if Cruise does it I'm not going.  I have joined Childs blog page to campaign against it - still, think it's a lost cause."

Gaile Hughes replied to Stuart Matthew Davis's discussion Does anyone else choose books by the locales in them?
"Lee Child had his character Reacher do a stint in Texas - Echo Burning (No five in the series), there may have been more.  Child's locale descriptions are quite well done. IMO"

Variety is the spice of life. Yes, it's just easier to say eclectic then to explain why my tastes are varied. \m/

Hi Gaile

Yes, I am a bit of a night owl. I think it's catching up with me, though, so a few early nights are prescribed. That'll surprise my husband!

Gaile, a very belated reply to your April message, which I must have missed. Sorry. My new book is out later this year, A CANTERBURY CRIME. As for using real locations, I do as long as I don't paint it in any way that is derogatory or suggest that people there are up to no good. You can use a real location but use fictional characters and feel sure that they don't reflect on real individuals. A disclaimer at the front of your book is a wise thing.
Hope you have lots of success with your writing and we see your books out there soon! ;-)
Cheers,
Brian
