Yeah, don't follow on a single twin on hard terrain. Weighting that over an edge is scary. My preferred method, since I do a lot (most?) of my multi-pitch with 3 people, is skinny ropes rated as twins and doubles. Something around 8mm. That gives the leader the option to clip both strands as twins, or to split them as doubles, while giving each follower their own strand.


I agree about the twins. I am using the metolius monster 7.8 which is rated as both twins and doubles. Kind of pointless to buy a twin that isn't rated as a double unless your on ice and even then...

I TR solo a bit using the microtraxion on a single fixed line. Anyone ever consider having the 2nd climber follow in that fashion, and then the 3rd climber on the end of the rope? I dont see how doing it that way could be more dangerous than TR soloing. Thoughts?
