If you're talking TR solo, you might consider the Ushba Basic Ascender. It's similar to the Petzl minitraxion but has no teeth. Mountain Tools even reccomends it as a TR solo device and briefly explains how to use it as such:

It works fine if the rope is weighted from below, but it's nice to use a sling as a chest harness as it keeps the ascender upright, which lessens your fall distance slightly and keeps it from bouncing against your junk while you climb.
