    Trouble with tree IV for EAB

    The ideal place is at the root collar or lower in significant buttressey roots. Are you using number 4 or 3 caps?

    Rope Wrench optimized for larger lines?

    I was saying I've used the 16 strand, a 48 strand, and 24 strand. I'm really not knocking the rope wrench and there's definitely a lot to be said about hitch adjustment. Rope construction also plays a big part in how it feels in your hands, and how easy it is to grip. The same things that make...

    Rope Wrench optimized for larger lines?

    Yale xtc fire. some kind of kernmantle with a red and blue cover (12mm i think), and tachyon. Like I said I do use the wrench with three different lines of varying construction and thickness, and I tie different hitches with different cordage on each. But I really am looking beyond just the...

    Rope Wrench optimized for larger lines?

    Hey guys, there are plenty of threads to post in about your combinations of cordage and rope that work well together. I am also not interested in discussing the zig zag or any mechanicals. That's really beyond the scope of what I'm getting at. I can tie hitches that work great with fatter lines...

    Rope Wrench optimized for larger lines?

    Rope Wrench optimized for larger lines?

    I'm aware of what the manufacturer suggests... I have used everything from 12 mm 48 strand static lines to 13 mm 16 strand xtc. Anything bigger than 12mm, and especially something without a tightly woven cover, will not run well on descent, and leaves fuzzies all over the slic pin from rubbing...

    Rope Wrench optimized for larger lines?

    Hey guys, am I the only one that isn't really into gripping skinny lines all the time? I do, because that's what works with my wrench the best, but it would be amazing if there was, say, a larger size optimized for larger ropes. I don't want to fiddle with hand ascenders or having to wear...

    what's the first mistake made in this rigging failure

    A better placement of the sling would have helped make everything more controllable. But bottom line is the rope broke. If the piece remained attached to the rigging and had hit a target as a result, then the conversation would pertain to the sling setup. So, too much of a shock load in...
