Thus it will be seen, that the impulse is imparted to the balance only during its
motion in one direction, and that such impulse is communicated during a long
drop or movement, nearly the distance of one tooth of the escape-wheel to
another, while the drop or movement of the escape-wheel, during the reverse
motion of the balance, is very short, and imparts no impulse to the balance. By
this means, great regularity of action is ensured, while the escapement is more
detached, and more ...

By the late nineteenth century British executioners such as William Marwood and
William Calcraft had perfected the long drop technique of hanging condemned
prisoners. The long drop relies on a calculated fall based on the prisoner's weight
being sufficient to fracture their neck and spinal cord at the second cervical
vertebrae. Death is believed to be quick and painless and the technique was
therefore considered significantly more humane than the short drop technique
which relies ...

Instead of the " short drop" generally used, we ought to employ the "long drop,"
which causes instantaneous death. It has been ascertained by me that the shock
of a ton dropped through one foot is just sufficient to fracture the anterior
articulating surfaces of the second vertebra at their contact with the atlas ; and
that this fracture allows the shock to fall upon the medulla oblongata so as to
produce instantaneous death. As the result of some consideration bestowed
upon this subject, ...

Ahead and just below now is the enjoyable, but all-too-short ridge leading on to
High Crag. You lose a little height before swinging left again along this narrower
section of the route. The high-level fun comes to an end on the summit of High
Crag; now, the descent begins. The steep path down Gamlin End is horribly
loose at first, and you lose a lot of height over a short distance. Cruelly, once this
descent is over, there is still one small hill to climb before you drop to the valley.
This is ...
