    New Hitch for the Hitch Hiker X and other things.

    Does the carabiner have to rotate before it starts to push up the HH in that configuration?

    The Seesaw System

    From what I’ve read from yoyoman, he was being humorous, and not trying to derail, or discourage the theme of this thread.

    Sticht Hitch

    I just tried the 6 wrap Prusik with a real long cord, there is a limit to how far away the ring can be from the wraps. It slid easier as I first started to separate them, but then started to became harder to move the farther they were separated. Sterling accessory cord with knots is what I...

    Sticht Hitch

    Hey Jon, if it binds, the ring is too close to the wraps. The legs of the cord you’re using might not be long enough to add slack to the upper part of the hitch. The 6 wrap Prusik in the other thread bites very hard by itself. With the twist and ring added, and long enough legs, the ring can...

    Beeline 8MM core and sheath eye splice

    It seems that with the 8mm having 75 percent Technora in the cover, that possible added strength isn’t being used in a naked eye splice. The double braid splice would also solve the OP’s problem.

    Sticht Hitch

    It looks like with the longer legs and using the bottom hole of the HC, it causes the pulley to rotate until the sheave contacts the twist, and then it starts to push the hitch. Maybe try the top hole with slightly shorter legs. This might make the HC push up on the ring, which in turn would...

    Sticht Hitch

    This hitch has come up in a couple other threads, Hitch Hiker Length, and Lanyard Adjuster. Thanks to those who are trying this hitch and giving feedback on their experiences. @JontreeHI, there might be binding due to the legs being too short to allow the ring to be positioned farther down from...

    Lanyard adjuster

    I’m going to start a new thread on the Sticht Hitch in the SRT forum as it has gone beyond lanyard adjusting.

    Beeline 8MM core and sheath eye splice

    It seems like it should be possible to do a double braid splice on Beeline to get the strength of the cover involved also.

    Lanyard adjuster

    Lanyard yes. MRS yes, but not as well without a hitch tending pulley. SRS is probably pushing the envelop a bit, but I bet it runs pretty well with a Rope Wrench. Depending on the climber-hitch cord-climbing rope variables, I may be overly optimistic, but for some it may even perform like a...

    Roof job - FA Rope questions

    Your Tiblocs could be used for hand or footloop ascenders, as the Chaplain suggested.

    Roof job - FA Rope questions

    Unless you’re at the edge, a slip would cause you to fall on the roof and then start sliding, causing friction to slow you down some.

    TRT

    I think it allows the climber to easily move the suspended anchor point between two trees, or stems, by pulling on one of the two ropes that come down through the carabiner.

    Roof job - FA Rope questions

    There are hitches that can only be used to ascend the rope, it is extremely difficult to make them descend. Maybe one of those for the top hitch and use the bottom Prusik, or Klemheist for positioning and descending. Gary Storrick’s website has about a dozen that are ascent only.

    Roof job - FA Rope questions

    The sliding Prusik might hit the Tibloc in such a way that it wouldn’t bite into the rope. Another type of device would be more reliable.
