Thanks for the replies everybody. Yeah I meant TR, sorry about that. And for the record, I never thought that this combination was a good idea either, it was simply a topic of discussion I had with someone recently, and since I wasn't about to be the guinea pig to test this configuration, I figured I'd post it here.
I just recently started using a SP for solo climbing (and btw I do have friends to belay me, jeepnphreak, lol , but being able to go climbing on your own anytime you want is beyond awesome).
I use pre-tied knots on a second line as backup, whether using the grigri OR the SP for self-belay (the latter being safer obviously, but that big piece of gear jiggling right by the family jewels can be a pain, literally).
And yes, perhaps this doesn't belong in the beginner's forum, my apologies. If a mod can please move it, cool. My reasoning was that since I only recently began using the SP it was a noob question in that regards.
Thanks again for the replies, all.
