...they've tightened the ropes.

...what?

Oh, OK, context and all that: The aerial tram being built between OHSU and the new campus in South Waterfront now has one set of ropes running between the upper and lower stations, arcing out over Southwest Portland. But I can't find a photo of that yet, damnit.

I drive by this just about every day, I'm still impressed by the height of that tower.

And yesterday what impressed me was actually seeing that the arc of the ropes between the upper station and the Macadam Ave. tower is rather shallow. It was one of those "Aha, this WILL work" sort of moments. I've only been on trams that followed the slope of the hills they were on fairly steeply (like the Wallowa Lake tram or the Gatlinburg, Tenn. tram), but though the top of Pill Hill is high, it's not THAT high...
