Dmm captain progress capture

Recommended Posts

Hi all I'm thinking about a Dmm captain and carnt decide on how to capture progress, so was wondering what other people are using?

 

I am thinking a pulley and e2e like a lanyard setup clipped to bridge when needed then can be used with foot ascender, at least with this idea it can be let out as well as in which I don't see how that's possible with a normal hand assender?

 

Hope that makes sense?

 

Thanks in advance RDB

the setup you mention will work well, and be very versatile.

Thanks joe that's good to hear, there doesn't seem to be any info anywhere on it! I guess it is a case of playing with it until I'm happy, thanks again

I use a rope wrench and vt on my throw hooks and clip in like normal SRT and walk across on the foot ascenders and haas as usual for transfers , fast and works great.

Thank you matty, I hadn't even thought that far ahead, at least with a wrench it won't lock up the vt!

There is that , made that one of carbon sheet an old pulley and a RW pin tbh honest throw hooks seem to work with what ever you put on them even a dirty old prussik ! That set up is tuned sweet although a little bulky I do run it on liros or blaze usually though and have a carabiner in the epple hook.

The BOLA works well with the right rope for progress capture. It has to be threaded and Rei installed a small non locking biner (not my doing) in place of the teardrop at the top. The bottom teardrop can be replaced with a RE Nano swivel if desired, but I rivet them in place for the BOLA which does not use cotters.
