      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      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!

8mm rope belay

Recommended Posts

No time for pics (headed to squamish in a minute!) but you just have two biners side by side right next to each other on your belay loop, with the ropes and the keeper ring on your reverso (or atc) going through both instead of one. It increases the angle of the bend in the rope. Also a good option if you are using a wet or frozen fatter rope.

my reverso bites just fine on a 8mm...6mm prussiks bite fine too as long as they are a more limber cord

I climb with the same rope, so I read this with interest and decided to take mine out today. I used muenter on a BD quicksilver and it held my weight on rappel with no problems.
