What would you say @Khriss?

 

Do you think it’ll filter across the whole sector or remain purely in the aforementioned public/utility part?

 

Anyone been in this situation where they’ve left a firm that enforces it and joined one that doesn’t? Were they able to keep up with other climbers?

I’m looking at this in my phone and can’t see the voting thing. Where is it?
Anyway, I’ll vote “yes I do use twin ropes”.
Although I’ll never admit to how many times in my climbing career that I have used TRT .

Ask Paul Poynter (softbankhawks) for more detail.... but basically it’s srt with two slightly thinner diameter ropes(8mm) through one device. So you basically can carry the retrieval leg with you and traverse through a million conifers easily. Amongst other benefits....

Ok so I’ll re-phrase that. “Two rope climbing & work positioning - TRC&WP”
I just meant Getting It Done With Two Main Lines. (GIDWTML)

 

Hehe. 👍👍👍. Wait til the aa wade in with their standard stop calling it “two ropes” malarkey..... I think you mean “one rope and a suitable back up”
