Downclimbing with ropewalker

Postby tagkycaver » Nov 18, 2018 9:04 am

Anybody got any good links, hints, or thoughts regarding downclimbing with ropewalker? (gibbs, chest roller, single or double bungee, petzl, etc.; not Mitchell, not Frog.)
Just talking bout occasional situations where you need to back down for a few feet. Was thinking that carrying an extra short jumar (left foot for Mitchell) would be an easy way to convert to a quick Texas system if you ever needed to go down in an emergency, etc. instead of trying to thumb bungies. Thanks.
