I am planning to do some photography work with some friends leading sport routes. I am thinking about setting up a top rope next to the route and ascending up and down with either two tiblocs or two prusiks. I know one of them will be connected to my harness and one for my foot. My question is will I need to have another way of connecting myself to the rope other than the tiblocs/prusiks? I was thinking about running my grigri between the two ascenders for added safety. Does this sound like a good idea or are there better ways of doing it? Or are the two points connected to the rope (tibloc/prusik) sufficient and safe.


Two connections to the rope if using ascenders, one is good if using the Grigri.

I'd go with the Grigri on your harness and use the Tibloc with a long sling for your foot ascender.

Prusiks would suck mightily.
