Anyone climb SRT???

Hi guys. Been watching some interesting videos in youtube with guys using SRT. Have never climbed using SRT and dont have any ascenders. Is anyone in the Essex area and uses SRT fancy hooking up for a recce climb and demonstrating the wonders of SRT? I fancy having a go but dont fancy wasting 100 on ascenders??

Shout you a couple of beers after the climb!

Cheers guys have a good week!

Erm, have you not seen the 'Rope Wrench Feedback' thread on here? Read that and a few other associated threads and you'll find everything you need to know.
I've been using a Rope Wrench since February on everything except tiny trees, it's the best.

Come along to the cirencester show, I'm demoing srt with the rope wrench and art gear. Between the lads there we should be able to point you in the right direction.

Oh and the rw feedback thread is an epic read that'll set you in good stead for making the transition
