Daww thanks for not lynching me :) looks like i might be making a trip to Bunningís :P If i can find something nice and thin Iíll be a happy camper indeed. The sports gloves i was looking at (golf, horse riding) were simply too expensive for something i probably wonít be using in a few months.

Sorry Bluey, to clarify, i probably should have written 'Girly-Girl' indicating that i would rather look like a pansy than project a persona of faux machismo and possibly deter myself from future belaying by hurting myself for the safety of my partner. I meant no intention of indicating weakness of any sort.

Also, catching the falls is not my problem, i took a few falls from my partner, and i anchor... my main issue was bringing him down, with the shiny slippery brand new rope i just cant seem to keep the tension i want on the rope without the friction burn, even if i am letting him down at a snails-pace. I'm sure it will come to me with practice :)

As for Belay device, i was using a standard ATC, but have switched to a dual friction, which has made a world of difference... i really donít like Gri-Gri's, Iím quite comfortable with the ATC, my technique just needs honing :)
