TR Self belay backup options 28-Jan-2015 At 11:37:55 PM harold
I do exactly as you say with traxion and gri gri back up. Pro- easy to go up and down to retry sequence and rap back down from top as you say. Con - doesn't slide as smooth as traxion or microcender.

I have traxion on my belay loop and gri gri extended with doubled over 60cm sling - keeps the devices apart and a bit of slack lets the gri gri slide better.

I have the gri gri rope weighted or tied down as per traxion (needs a bit more weight, sometimes I use a coles bag with a few rocks chucked in it) and usually slides fine - certainly not as smooth as the traxion - but key is to have gri gri with enough slack that it doesn't grab the rope.

and falling.

I used to clip into tied back up loops as you say but that was a pain. This way no need to pull rope or anything, just climb. Anyway, this is whats worked well for me, I enjoy it..feel free to critique.
