Does this climbing kit look ok?

Are you concerned about overheating/glazing your prussic cord @DanMaynard?

Not really overheating, just find that less weight on the knot makes it tighten less and so smoother to use. Descending like this seems smooth and progressive, I have tried zigzag with pulley at top a few times and find it very on-off which I don't really like. I think some of this is me being 110kg plus kit.


Also when pulling up on arms, friction at the top is helping my left arm hold me up while I take up slack with right - so it's not always bad.

Another +1 for the multi saver, or a cambium saver in general, the multi is amazingly versatile but more pricy than a cheap stein cambium saver. Might be worth getting a multi saver and a backup if you’re using 2 ropes (as your kit list suggests)
