-For heavier climbers, climbers with a backpack, and long traverses, I add a chest harness to the setup (The BD Vario Chest harness is excellent--in this photo, we've improvised with a sewn runner)

That's a great suggestion, Darren.

Here, this is also a fairly long traverse, so it is nice to be able to hang and rest at the midpoint, before climbing out to the other side. Nov 12, 2011

probably dont need that chest harness if you take that pack off and clip it to your harness, pulley, or line dragging it behind you... Sep 22, 2009
