Innovation...?

Throw these on a sport anchor, and make a thrilling (good) belaying for people on top rope. Trad climbers, think of the last climb with rope drag "issues"; now throw this little guy on a long sling and take the profanity out of climbing.

Responded on

Using these on a top rope would be a terrible idea. More friction means more force for the belayer, which means more work for the belayer, which means more chance for error.

Responded on

Less friction, but also less rubbing on the rope. I doubt (but don't know) it would add much more force on the rope at the belayers hands.. Unless you got a 140 pound belayer and a 180 pound climber, I say go for it!
