renelein said: Hi Chris, i´m going to yosemite next year. now im figuring out hot aidclimbing works (it´s not that populare at where I am from..). I allready read "how to bigwall climb" and saw this video from you abou leading steep terrain, but I´m stil not shure whats the sens of daisy chains.. what are they for? the only advantage I see is, that i can´t drop the aiders.. thx in advance , best regrads from austria, rené

They are mainly for bounce testing and for steep terrain. Not really necessary for C1 and C2
