Dude, try to follow the conversation... arenít carrying *nothing*. Youíre carrying extra length of rope to clove hitch in with. You didnít need it on the pitch, did you? Well you should chop it off and only carry the amount of rope you need then, because I guarantee you my cord weighs less than that extra rope youíre lugging around all over the place. Haha! clearly, Iím a BIGGER RETARD nazi than you. ;)

I'm trying to understand your argument about the extra rope... Please explain more clearly. Do you have a rope that is the absolute length of every climb you do? No one is actually talking about having extra rope attached to them. Its quite the contrary. On the other hand you have the same amount of rope, all the draws you needed, cams, AND the addition of a PAS.

Your PAS is an ACCESSORY, that adds weight and bulk.

Besides all that ridiculousness... you know the rope is only as heavy as the length from the belayer to your harness, plus drag, whilst climbing. Unless you are doing something incredibly wrong. Unsure

If you are, then please share your bulk and weight saving techniques that add bulk and weight. I'd like to snicker a bunch more.Pirate
