Smith Rock - First Attempt at Photography Rigging

I've been wanting to learn how I could take better photos of my friends while out climbing. Luckily this last weekend (5/19/19), I was able to learn and practice my skills. Oh my God, its so much fun! I used a Petzl Ascender to haul my way up the rope with an attached foot loop and a Petzl GriGri to lower myself (with a stopper knot for when my hand wasn't on the break).

The sharp end tied to my harness with the Grigri on the other side. Used for lowering.

Below is a sample of my favorite photos from my first attempt:
