I came to this site to learn something about climbing and safety while being off the ground.
After combing through pages and pages on this forum I can't find an answer to a specific question about properly tying to a harness with a nylon runner.
I will be using a BD Momentum climbing harness while deer hunting from a 15' - 30' elevated stand.
Keep in mind that I do not use the harness to climb and I am not a climber but my harness will hopefully keep me safe if I should fall out of the stand. I will be tied in close so a if a fall should occur it would be only a few feet before being caught by my safety line.
I will be attaching the runner to the main safety rope (11mm Dynamic) using a carabiner and prussic loop(7mm PMI cord) and attach the other end of the runner to my harness.
I guess my question is what is the best and safest way to attach the runner to my harness? Girth hitch? Carabiner?
Thanks for your help
