soloing with Petzl Basic
8:32:22 AM
Just wanting to know recommendations for self belaying with a Petzl Basic,
Do people wear chest harnesses usually or is it fine to just attach to your belay loop?
Back it up with a prussik and if so above or below the device, guessing above?
Does it make a huge difference the biner you use to clip into it, providing it can lock?

This topic has a bit of stuff on it:

Below is links to 3 technical notices from Petzl on 3 different products. Read and understand these fully before purchasing/using a product (this goes for any brand).
Also, remember that all product technical notices rely on your rope being in good condition.
People will talk about devices stripping rope sheaths. This will mostly occur with rope in poor condition or if the forces you generate in a fall exceed those advised by the manufacturer.

Best of luck and enjoy your roped soloing.
