    Grigri vs. Grillon

    I use a rescuecender above my rope wrench and anchor a foot loop to it, pretty darn fast and simple, XD. I am just a hobbyist in all honesty though.

    Grigri vs. Grillon

    So I got a grillon lanyard for $40 bucks, mostly to fuck with the grillon and to elaborate, the big difference is one has a spring loaded cam and the other does not. What I found I was able to do with the Grillon, not the gri gri, was use it with my Rope Wrench (I finally got one!!!) and it more...

    F8 Revolver Advice?

    I am obviously going to play with it this weekend, maybe get a video or something, but you are so right. It's about the desire to overcome the obstacle I have been dealt thus far. I was able to borrow an F8 for a week and all I have has been from my attempts at rock climbing gear (a harness and...

    F8 Revolver Advice?

    I guess I have not seen any video of the rope runner or rope wrench done where you can swing the tail of your SRS system into a pulley attached to your F8's second tail and pull yourself up on the single line with. 2:1 mechanical advantage, I just need to have this rain stop and do a video. I...

    F8 Revolver Advice?

    SO I ASSUME NO ONE HAS EVEN TRIED THIS. Honestly, rope wrench doesn't work as a foot anchor or have the ability to attach a pulley to it for 2:1 purposes, so this change makes this more functional than a RW... and cheaper... "edit" Not trying to sound snarky, I realize this is working season...

    F8 Revolver Advice?

    This seems like an appropriate place to share! First off, thanks Brocky for eagerly wanting to share wisdom, hell thanks everyone here who all are so open to share a new level of freedom for a normie like myself. The F8 Revolver just seems fun and fluid, how I feel life SHOULD (although we all...

    F8 revolver

    Probably making an ass of myself, but for posterity reasons, maybe it can be the Two 'Tailed' Fate, XD.

    Hope you can see what I did... Standing on this config alone and honestly feels like jumping would be what makes it slip...

    F8 revolver

    RANTING, but tests are even showing I can run a pulley off this to give myself a 2:1 on limb walk, will have to see if I can make this viable to 2:1 my own weight up the line... XD

    F8 revolver

    For my weight so far, it is holding and I bet it can be experimented with TONS, mixture of stitch hitch and fatetender (seeing as I don't have a revolver), I will try and get in a tree this week or maybe coordinate getting footage functioning, seeing as of right now it has been me hanging in my...

    F8 revolver

    I believe I may have found a new way to utilize the 8 in two modes where it can act both as your descending AND ascending tool... :) More tinkering to come, managed to borrow one from a buddy till I get my own, and well... I am feeling REALLY siked if it works smoothly getting up a tree like I...

    F8 revolver

    Is there anyway I could see this in action? Link doesn't work, and I realize this is YEARS later, but messing with permutations of the figure 8 and curious the visual on the change relative to the original video.

    Noob Update/ Rough Draft

    I did it! Not the stitch hitch, still failing on the ring locking in the friction hitch for some reason, BUT the rope wrench from a bobbin and random doodads works well! Almost too well, XD. The second bobbin has a 5mm looped on itself to create two ends that I can run through the rings/binder...

    Noob Update/ Rough Draft

    Figured easier than posting in ten different places and I am totally open for critique and advice with the disclaimer I am not doing this professionally and love the act of making use of what I can, kind of living in a project mobile home and goal is off the grid mobile musician/explorer sooooo...

    SRT on 1/2" rope

    The Bobbin RW 'idea', obviously for show with the twist tie, BUT I'm pretty sure I can make this work... Tends easily with force applied at the second runner and if the carabineer is pulled by hand you get an extra bit of bite!

    SRT on 1/2" rope

    So I have looked through the whole thread on the Stitch Hitch and the reason for using a loop is because I had them for Friction hitches before I started researching the depth of systems there are (aka when I was reading Freedom of the Hills, mountaineering stuff) and see as my funds are limited...

    SRT on 1/2" rope

    YEP, definitely binding on me, XD. More trials... So I guess I am trying to understand the mechanics more to apply them better. The rings take the friction more than the hitch, but seem to be misapplying them to this...

    Well shit, faillllll, grabbing too hard to reascend... Tinkering some more!!!

    F8 Revolver Advice?

    I know this, but before there was mechanical, there was physics! And I am flat broke for a while, like I don't do arborist work, I just got a perfect job for my needs, but as a hobbyist, I am investing where prudent. I will probably get a hitchclimber or pinto pulley in the future, because they...
