    The JRB Climbing Method

    I was using 11.4mm rope with a Hitchhiker device. Rope walking with a knee ascender and foot ascender.

    The JRB Climbing Method

    Thanks. If I try the Michoacan, I will have to learn to tie it in my sleep. I used the VT on one climbing device. I sometimes had to push it up to get it to set.

    Pipe and cigar talk

    I had a friend I used to do construction work with and we used to sit in his garage and smoke, him cigarettes and me a pipe. I mostly smoked cherry or mesquite pipe tobacco. When I started scuba diving, I gave up the pipe. He smoked several packs a day and he died of a stroke about 6 years...

    Aider Broke - Info and Discussion (UPDATE)

    I guess it should have been sewn like in this video. I may have been hanging from Sally the saddle with only the bury on the prusik holding me. I would not have if I knew. Only for use at ground level was the warning, which I ignored. With a sewing machine, I could run a seam along the...

    The greatest time of the year

    I just checked and PA opens this Saturday. Seems earlier than before. Do you hunt them from the saddle?

    A cutoff wheel in a grinder should remove the mesh cleanly.

    Sewing Machine Deals for the DIY Guys

    That is a nice machine. It is aluminum so is lightweight. I have the portable. I took it to a friend's house to alter a project I sewed for her.

    The JRB Climbing Method

    I considered trying your system but have not been climbing since the Spring and will not have time before hunting season. Maybe I will try it later. I always keep my ascender and descender on my climbing line and move them like an inchworm. One device backs up the other both up and down. It...

    The JRB Climbing Method

    I have experimented with friction hitches and after a few instances where they locked up and a few where they slipped, I gave up before I was injured.. Metal devices were invented for a reason, otherwise rock climbers would still be using only friction hitches. I will gladly carry the extra...

    Aider Broke - Info and Discussion (UPDATE)

    Is this a commercial treehopper platform or a DIY? I guess people should be careful about sharp edges no matter what they tie on. UHMWPE is supposed to be very tough from previous videos I have seen. I don't know. It looks like it cut clean through the outer sheath and the inner bury.

    What I thought was the core must have been the bury.
