  1. It not just the diameter but the construction. Mountaineering rope is nylon and not designed to be used in a friction based climbing system. Hence the op described the system he was taught for emergency use. Prusiks just wouldn’t be used in nylon rope otherwise.
  2. Bit judgemental without knowing the details. For example If my house was alongside a busy main road and my kids play area was adjacent to the road I certainly know whose lives would be the priority for me to protect
  3. Anyone happen to have any images of mold on wood chip piles I could have please?

  11. Irrationally angry some might say. you lost me on physician
