Topic - escape the system by taking off harness

Rich Tyler - on 14 May 2012
Ok so with 'always being safe' in mind ive got a question regarding escaping the system.
The scenario is you have topped out, walked around a tree and tied a clove hitch into your tie in loop, you then attach the belay to the same tie in loop and begin to belay, the climber gets stuck half way up, how do you escape the system after tying off the belay plate?

You could take your harness off but that'll leave you on the edge of the crag without any protection, not very safe at all.

Thanks in advance, Rich.
