Rigging line out of reach

Recommended Posts

Nothing wrong with stein gear, just a few people get a bee in their bonnet about things, and others jump on the bandwagon. I have plenty of stein stuff and can't honestly think of anything to complain about

 

Have you used any of it Steve?

Yes plenty Mike.

 

Off the top of my head, been climbing in stein trousers for the past 2 years, boots about the same. Throwbags, tool strops, skywalker pulley, have a couple of their new t-shirts which seem ok although they are still quite new. probably some other random bits and bobs that I cant think of now

I use an extendable dog lead with a krab on the end for these situations, the rigging rope runs through the krab then the ground ties a stopper knot in the rigging line once he's untied it and I can just pull it back up to myself.

 

Ahhhh thats essentially what I have come up with. It's a little bit different, uses the same concept though.

 

I wanted to sample a couple of different combinations of accessory carabiners though as I am worried about it being dragged down with the piece due to friction.

 

How have you found your carabiner runs? What sort of length do you get out of the leash?

You know what? I now understand what everyone is on about.

A line with a carabiner attached to the branch/log end of the lowering rope so he can pull it back after it has been released.

Am I right?

As he said but iv never found a krab being dragged down with the piece. There is no resistance on the karabiner unless the dog lead runs out of line or it gets snagged on something when it swings. If your unsure then tie lead to the stem then worse case you won't get pulled about.

Yup, I have never found the need to use a pulley but if you were bothered that's the way to go
