Got the rope stuck on the second rap in Dead Eye Dick, a sweet 70ft I went up. First mistake was not trying a pull when I went down first. After girlfriend came down and tried to pull, realizing it was stuck, we began trying different angles of pull with each strand, moving about in the stomach deep pool. After doing that for a bit with nothing happening, I forgot what strand had the block on it since we couldn't see over the rock lip up top and the bag had come off the end of the rope. I suppose there was some general confusion after we stopped thrashing about in the pool trying every angle of pull. Of course I went up the strand that had the block on it (didn't realize it till I could see over lip), but girlfriend had taken other strand and tied in as meat anchor and wedged beneath a rock that was leading into another pool. We were fairly certain if the rope came loose I wouldn't fall since she was my anchor. Going up was smooth and the rope didn't move at all thankfully. When I could see over the rock lip I noticed that the rope had become crossed and was blocking the biner from coming over the edge of the rock lip. Any weight applied to one strand effectively blocked the other it seemed. Lesson learned, don't cross the ropes. We did have another rope and a pull cord so we could have left the stuck rope and continued on but we discussed the fact that we could possibly stick the other rope. Decision was made, I was going up and she was going to be the anchor and it worked out great. Mistakes were made and we certainly have learned from them. At what point does one decide to leave the rope? Dead Eye Dick was a hoot btw.
