  1. Tying ropes together?

    Hi, I'm info gathering so thanks in advance. Does anybody use an accessory pull-cord for full length raps on one strand? What knots do you like? Is an EDK appropriate when pairing diameters of 6mm and 10mm? Any experiences with a knot pulling through itself or through the anchor?
  2. Tying ropes together?

    Thanks again for all the input. I realize there is already a good amount of info out there. It seems there are definitely multiple options for descent.
  3. Tying ropes together?

    So, descend on two. Add a second biner to the belay device for greater friction on the smaller cord only...
  4. Tying ropes together?

    After staying up all night reading, it seems to me the best low-profile system is a biner-block using a clove hitch and an EDK. Unfortunately it also seems that the sanest way to secure the single rap line incorporates a snag-loving carabiner

    Ahh, good link.

  7. Smith Rock Rescue Saturday

    I watched these guys for a while also. My bet is that they rapped without a prussik and missed the next rap station in the dark.

    Has anybody had any problems with a follower falling near the beginning of the 2nd pitch on the 3-pitch sport climb at the far right? Like a dangerous fall or rope damage...

    The 10s do look great. I did this route again yesterday. Like the first time my rope got stuck in the same place. Except the first time I used a runner and the second time I used a short draw. Stuck both times...

    Thanks for the responses. I agree that it's a fine pitch for the experienced climber and also flag worthy for the less experienced.

    I ask because I witnessed a bad second fall. And I had a second fall and damage the rope to the core. I'm not convinced this pitch is safely protected and am info gathering. Thanks
