Ushba backup grigri
Ushba backup grigri
solo tr both lines fixed. My question is : do I need to extend gri or ushba? Both or one of them? Now they r both in direct biner to belay loop. Kinda cluster...and I need redundancy so to me its not overkill.

Hello MP.

Sure.

It's a bit overexposed and the contrast is nil. Also slightly out of focus. I'd suggest that you use a smaller aperture, with a sufficient shutter speed to correctly expose the subject. The photographer's shadow is cast on the subject which is always a no-no.

Since you only posted an image I presume that's what you wanted critiqued? Cheers!

oh... and your rope-solo setup looks overkill

Whatever your goal is, it's overkill

Hard to tell what you're doing.

Are both ropes fixed? Or, are they running through an anchor?

You're backing up a Gri Gri? On a different rope strand? Are you rappelling? Belaying?

If you're backing up a Gri Gri while rappelling single strand, I'd say your rig is overkill. No one backs up a partner being belayed with a Gri Gri...

You brake hand is your back up...

Ok, I'll critique this- it's quite lame and super creepy that you keep coming back here despite being banned numerous times.

Book me, officer.

I enjoyed the fart.

I'm responding in case the others are wrong and you're not actually a troll. I do almost the same thing for my tr solo set up. The only difference being that I use a Cinch and an Usba rather than a Gri Gri and an Ushba. The Cinch feeds better. A small amount of weight at the bottom helps the ropes feed. Usually I just anchor them to my pack.

I used to think I had powerful farts...
