Rock Climbing Photo: 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.

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 Ima Fred Knot

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. Nick Stayner

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. Superclimber
