Petzl sequoia srt 2019 harness

Recommended Posts

Morning all,

i am about to change my harness and am currently using hitch climber system with two strops for conny bashing and a spider jack and mini frog, for open tree work, if I’m feeling brave. My question is really that  Petzl describes using a zigzag with the new srt style sequoia so would there be any reason not to use the srt harness grey attachment point under the main bridge for the spider jack. Making the whole climbing system tighter and compact giving you more rope to feed through both systems?

Any thoughts please

The attachment point is BS EN 358:2018 rated so it’s good to go. My rock climbing harnesses obviously have a bridge of that type to belay from. I tend to tie a re-threaded figure eight to fall on though. Most people don’t though they clip straight in. Most will belay of the strong point though. I like the new Petzl sequoia SRT myself for work. Let us no know how you get on. This is an old photo of my Stein. I messed with a way of taking in the bridge for SRT ascending. The Petzl SRT has everything I’d want built in.

I guess there is no reason why you couldn't, but you wouldn't get the side to side motion which the bridge provides. Good for ascent I'd imagine but I went for the regular Sequoia (2019) because I felt the SRT version was more cluttered and restrictive.
