When I was first buying gear to learn climbing, I bought a 150' piece of 12-strand called Blue Ox from Amazon. My first rec climb was with a couple experts and they voiced some concern about whether this rope would work with either my RR or Wrench so I used one of their climb lines instead. After buying a long length of Xstatic and a 90' piece of Tachyon, I couldn't figure out what to do with this rope. Then, I had the idea to try it for a minimal gear DRT climb. It is heavy and soft and holds a knot really well. Although I've only climbed SRT so far I figured it would be useful to know another technique. I went with a Blake's hitch and a clove hitch to hold the carabiner to my saddle and no other gear. I did the pull and hip thrust method for the first 20 feet and then decided to add foot locking which made it about a million times easier and faster. The hitch broke without too much effort and was easy to control in terms of descent speed. My wife snapped this picture of me hanging around relaxing.
