      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Thin ropes

blah blah blah......I would just assume you need some thin prusiks when the line gets thin like that,.... blah blah blah


All you need to do is take another wrap or two on your prussic to increase friction. On job sites in this state, you used to be required to have 3 wraps on your safty line where I'm finding climbers will commonly only use 2. I like thin prussic's with four wraps where the load won't be dynamic.
