Hey all, I'm new here. I'm not an arborist. I do industrial rescue (confined space and high angle), and recently picked up a rope walking setup and unicender. There's a lot of value in being able to have a medic climb out of a hole while the team is hauling the patient. The issue I've encountered with the unicender is that while going up on sterling 1/2" rope is easy, coming down is not. I can't use the "normal" technique with wrapping the top and bottom bars, and I can't use the "advanced" technique. Both leave me in the same spot, which is no closer to the ground. Instead, I have to pull down on just the top of the unicender and control my speed with the running end of my rope. I am on belay with an ASAP on a second rope while doing this, so my safety is not in jeapordy, but it just doesn't feel controlled. I'd rather not have to switch to one of my other friction devices while suspended. Will the unicender "loosen up" continued use?
