Roped Soloing - Who Does It? (for OP) 5-Sep-2008 At 3:12:21 PM Icarus
Message
Bring this back from the depths. Sorry!
Would a ATC Guide (in self-belay mode) work for top rope soloing?
The only problem I could really see is that I'd probably have to pull rope though.
Dan.

EDIT: Actually, after playing around with the set up in the lounge room, it could be kinda dangerous. If
the 'locking' beiner gets pulled on by anything, in any direction, then the device looses its grip on the
rope, and becomes a very fast abseil. I'll just buy something safe.
