    Sticht Hitch

    The small ISC ring is about the smallest the 9mm will fit through, had to fiddle a little to get the second end through. Adjusting is harder the tighter the fit though.

    Sticht Hitch

    @Lupin_IV, if you go with a smaller ring it might force the twist up off the rope causing the two cord sections on the top and bottom of the twist to be more like a V rather than a U. The V shape will cause friction that’s not needed as the rope gets wedged into this V shape. A separate...

    notch sentinel rigging plates

    Strategically Spaced Stubs is the term I use, gives them more street cred.

    Rope strength question

    Perhaps strength is a frequent concern because it isn’t something the average person can test. Knot security, stability and jam resistance can be arrived at by trial and error in a low and slow method to find answers by most.

    Inferno Splice?

    Right, treat it like Tachyon, Eric Forman, ARLO here, has an excellent video on this splice.

    Double-headed vs Single Head Ultra Sling?

    The eye is purposely spread to allow the ring to rotate like a pulley sheave. The concept is is used again on this soft friction saver.

    Inferno Splice?

    Sounds like it’s a practice piece now, or can be used for adjustable friction saver, something like that.

    Inferno Splice?

    I remember now, I thought maybe you snagged a part of a strand, easy to do. To try the splice again, bend, stretch and compress the area were things came to a grinding halt. This may get the affected fibers back in place. Try to keep the wire fid in the middle while compressing the rope until...

    Sticht Hitch

    This is a hitch that easily releases and can be used to descend in control manner. As Lupin stated there is a basic form and other improvements increase performance by small increments. There is also a way to include the tender in the hitch, and a different way of making the hitch cord eyes by...

    The spacer looks like a good option, doesn’t have the deeper groove of a rigging ring! Are you finding that the single overhand is enough? When using a similar tender I can wiggle it when loaded.

    Inferno Splice?

    Too much work, too much waste, or did you have trouble with the splice?

    Is this safe?

    I forgot about the lock out option on the cam, are you using a Munter hitch on the added carabiner?

    Is this safe?

    Sounds like a good system for ascending, connecting the hand ascender to the harness would give it some redundancy. The original RAD system that you’re using had a Grigri instead of Traxion to be able to descend at anytime. Do switch over to a hitch when in the tree? I was looking at your...

    Sticht Hitch

    I played with the Blake’s for SRT awhile back, think I came up with something similar to yours, don’t know if it might start binding up with multiple cycles of loading and unloading. Ending with one eye seemed to make it twist around the rope when descending. Gave it a two eye finish to put a...
