Re: [anthonymason] ascending with tibloc or prusik

The Grigri is not designed to be an unassisted break and though I know many people use the Grigri in hands free situations, I would personally recommend you invest in an I.D. This is the commercial version of the Grigri which has a brake built in. Its designed to be used hands free which is ideal if you are hanging on it for things such as photography. For ultimate safety I would be inclined to drop two top ropes, one to ascend and the other with an A.S.A.P on it. The reasons for the second rope and the A.S.A.P is because if you take a fall on an Ascender or Tiblock, you can shred the rope.
