Good set up for toproping at Point Perp?
2:11:23 AM
Hey, I climbed at the Point this weekend and wanted to chuck in a couple of quick topropes at the end of the day. The problem was that I was dicking round with the setup and it wasn't that quick.

I didn't want to be lowered over the square edge and scrape the rope all the way down. I tried abseiling but that just introduced complexity and slowness to what was meant to be quick.

Anybody worked out a good solution?

Assuming top belay

1- build anchor with cordlette

2- add gri gri to masterpoint

3- measure out 30 meters of rope ( or whatever you need plus a bit for good luck)

4 - thread gri gri in top belay mode and add backup knot

5 - tie in to end, thread rap device at gri gri., throw rope and rap down

6 - dissconnect rap and you're on belay

7. Dont bother taking the gri gri off the climber, leave it whre it is.

You explained that very well

Rapping on a pre-threaded Grigri - with the right amount of rope already out! That's the shiz. Cheers Steve!

And WWS, I own the Grigri - so I will be retrieving it at the end.

Just toprope solo with a couple of micro traxions or similar. That way Kate can sit in the shade and read rather than being bored shitless performing a task which can be handled by an inanimate object.

But Kate loves belaying me - I know that without even asking!

Wide is onto something if you're rapping in to a hanging start. Just leave the abseil grigri on above your knot and climb, to avoid the faff of taking it off one-handed.

Once you get into mini traxing, you'll quickly come to understand that forcing someone to belay your boring fitness laps is a form of partner abuse.
