Silent Partner - the finer points 29-Aug-2016 At 2:07:39 PM hamish_b
Hey all,
I've just had a bit of a play with my silent partner over the weekend. Some multi pitch sport to get the systems worked out. I had a few questions as to the finer points that other silent partner users may have already worked out.

-It seems to me that a shorter rope is an advantage. I'm tying off clove hitches every 6m or so, so at the start of the climb the whole 60m of rope is hanging off my harness in 10 by 3m loops. Or are people using longer (or shorter loops).
-Following on from the above, how do you keep the whole belay loop area from becoming a total mess...
-The end game is to go and spend a week or so on el cap, but I can see offwidthing/chimneying with all the rope loops and the device itself being fairly ugly and lets face it, offwidthing is already fun enough as it is. Anyone got any experience with rope solo wide cracking?
-when you rap then jumar to clean are you better off cleaning on rap or on the jumar? It might seem heaps easier to clean on rap at first, but i find jummaring less tiring when you have gear a few metres ahead and it becomes esp. interesting on a route that has a lot of sideways movements. I'm leaning towards cleaning on rap and then lowering out off the anchor on climbs with a lot of sideways movement.
-anyone found any good forums/resources for using the silent partner free climbing?
