Aye the Chester or Stein ... if he likes tying his hitch loose then a neck tether, personally I prefer a neck tether.

thanks for your replies, it dosent seem like there is one stand out method then so i guess he will just have to find out which works best for him.

Bunjee cord on a hand ascender cause im a cheap skate bastard.

interesting - even with a haas and a foot ascender you still have to hold the rope, so no harm in adding a few extra grams of ally to the tangle
