    They are not a manufacturer, they are an unnecessary middle man. To meet the price point, they source less than top quality materials for Atlantic Braids to do so. Therefore I don't support either company. AG's owner has never climbed anything, he wears a suit. The big three have company people who practice what they preach.

    Just put in the order for a RW, chest box, and hand ascender. Thinking this will be a nice new climbing experience.
    Now, with the chest box advancing the hitch, is the hand ascender even necessary? Maybe for a better grip and limb walking, but no need to tether it to the hitch climber, correct?
    I have been reading and watching on all the different basil anchors. There are a few lowerable ones I dig. Mainly the simple hard locked figure 8 on a base sling. But seeing as I don't yet have a static 200' line, lowerable may not always be aplicable. So I was thinking the Yosemite bowline with a butterfly above it to hook up a seperate line in the event of an emergency. But is the only way to utilize that seperate line by CUTTING the original line below the butterfly? Because you would not be able to untie the bowline under tension. Or am I mistaken?

    It's a nice tending point for a chest harness. It had clear tubing on it but a friend who I lent it to decided to take it off without asking me.

    Does anyone have any pros or cons to setting up the RW with the prusik in the bottom home of the hitch climber and the tether of the RW into the top hole of the HCP? I am finding it too stuffed to have the prusik, HCP, and RW all on the same Biner. I am using a rook on my bridge, so it has to be one of those rock exotica Os.

    That is my preferred way to set up the Rope Wrench, because it allows me to easily remove it once I reach my initial TIP and switch to double rope for advancing higher while alternating between the climbing line and lanyard. I use an extra slic pin to connect the tether to the top hole of the Hitch Climber pulley, and I have two ordinary washers that fit it just right to hold it in place. I drilled a small hole in both washers and tied them together with a short piece of throw-line so I don't lose the washer when I take it off. The downside: that extra bulk in the top hole of the pulley means you have to route the hitch cord around it, but I have not had a problem with that at all.

    I heard Xtremely static could be a problem with basal anchors because in the event of high forces being generated, all that shock loading is x2 at the TIP. So slightly dynamic would have some absorption.
    BUT static is more delightful concerning ascent.
    I am super noob at the SRT thing though, so this is not coming from experience by any means.
