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...

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.

Tyrolean Traverse Set-up II

-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)
