Quick Q Re: Solo TR 5-Aug-2016 At 11:42:19 AM capt_planit
I gave up on the chest harness and just use my harness (harder to cross-load?). I also use two large krabs, one for my abseil device one for the camp lift ascender, this makes switching easy. The camp lift definitely prevents ankle injury. I had a hold pop this week (what I do should probably be described as TR-bouldering) and I wound up 35 cm above a very pointy rock. This with the failed hold (I was laybacking) little more than 1.5 m off the deck. I have a prussik on the other line (both dynamic, no static). I mainly use the prussik to unweight the main line to switch to abseil mode but I suppose it is also a backup of last resort. I either use the rope (coiled up) or stuff sack with some webbing/water bottle for weight. Rope protection over the edge is definitely a good idea (that I always seem to fail at). Cheap setup and great fun.
