Future planning for bigwalls, currently building solo belay system and would like to have dual purpose& strength to haul. My idea here is that the Petzl Rescucender/Rollclip will be the progression capture device, and the Handled Ascender will be where I pull & add a foot ladder. This photo is on the Rescucender manual. The additional pulley I added to their system would be to increase efficiency as pulling down is easiest & can incorporate the whole body. I'm trying to go with this Rescucender because it is designed without sharp teeth :-D I think my proposed system(1) would bring the Rescucender up into the pulley's and get all kinds of jammed. Compared to Hudon's 2:1, I wouldn't have the means to reset the system like the second short rope he's using.
