Longer Raps on Joined Ropes 1-Dec-2004 At 2:06:19 PM bapak
Many thanx Shaggy & Phil;

* Static rope on top. * 2 ropes should be fine, 3 OK but for longer Raps = use less/longer rope(s) * Double fisherman's & stopper knots (my current practice). * Euro death knot option : joined single ropes = only as strong as the weakest link. * Alpine butterfly "loop" option = handy to clip into when "passing the knot". * "Porter" option for > 200 metres/16kg of rope ! (hired "photographic gear sherpa" to summit of Mt Rinjani Lombok last August inc Pentax 6x7cm medium format kit, it errupted again a month later)
