I got the idea from a thread on this forum a couple of years ago. I did a search this morning but I can’t find it. The plan is to tie Rope Wrench on fid just below basket (Chinese finger cuff) when you step up to climbing line to attach your system you grab the end of the rope and secure it to fid via basket. If all goes well you pull fid out of tied WR system and your on the climbing line. Maybe a long shot but for $60 I’m going to give it a try.
