Thanks for your post and sorry to ask for further clarification. Could you elaborate on your use of the static rope for protection as I move to the edge? Would you attach yourself with a separate carabiner to the loose end of the static with a Munter hitch and prusik? Ive read that some people clove hitch into it. Or would you be tying into the actual static anchor (so not the excess leftover static)?
Thank you for describing the approach because that really made it clear. I typically extend my belay device with a double sling according to Petzl's suggestion and then clip the autoblock into my belay loop to avoid getting it caught in my atc. I'll be trying this out on some steeper class 3 terrain this weekend
