    Lanyard Help?

    Ditch the ring. Pointless Try a couple of hitches. Michoacan,knut etc Distels lock up alot. Look at youtube for hitches. Seriously,the ring is pointless

    Anchor system

    First pictute for me,simple setup. I would replace the 3way biner with a dmm quad lock biner cause ive seen triple locks open by rubbing against a branch so a 4 way lock would give me the extra peice of mind. Keep it simple

    Yes,but to be fair its CE marked and is rated to use with the zz. In my honest opinion i think petzl have been pretty smart on this except how it looks. Fugly!

    Climbing under supervision

    No decent arb firm would send a climber out with no trained rescuer. Thats not too say it doesnt happen. Just ask any subbies you know. I done a rigging job with 1 groundie who had 3 days experience no kind of training,not even used a chainsaw. The next time i used that firm i brought in my own groundie who was at that point almost 50 and could run the ground work on his own easy.

    Climbing under supervision

    But its not and it isnt. How can 2 climbers,1 trainee 1 experienced be interpreted as 3? 2 or maybe even 4 i could see but 3??
