Original 200t modified and the rope is 11.6 petzle

Yes it looks a good rope, I’m thinking of going down the zigzag route but was wondering on how different your 11.6 would be to a 12.5. Do or did you find your hand we’re hurting using a smaller rope as there is less to grip, just your thoughts really bud, cheers

Hi mate I have climbed on 11.7 for years and not had any problems 11.6 definitely runs slightly better through the device! I almost always climb wearing pfanner reds which help with grip I also spend nearly all my time doing take downs which means am on spikes which am sure makes me less aware of grip problems because I tend to climb the tree not the rope I really do rate the petzle rope though definitely one of the best ropes for zigzag

The winds the least of your worries, you should be more Concerned about the police only climbing on 1 rope

Spent the lad two days working on a long on going job, felled and processed a few macrocarpa trunks... 461 was ripping as usual, although did end up being a 25" metal detector
Also here was the view at the end of the day!4438edac29877ae7322bd4fd7f0d0016.jpg062931a9ef79f306139c3127102a2835.jpg6ca76df985d047592476aac27a4a9211.jpg

Rotten Poplar pollard . Two rope working and despite the considerable handicap I was glad of two points of attachment at certain parts of the job. At other points of the job it was a tangled nightmare.

I never get it when someone specs pollarding a manky lombardy.

 

It's like wiping half your arse.

I hate Poplars. They should all be horizontal. Some pictures from the other day. 

I also hate Ivy covering cavities in trees as well as dead Ash trees🤦‍♂️
