Topic - crevasse rescue / ropeman question

Kelcat - on 23 Jun 2012
Hi All, hope I can explain my question.
I'm roped up for crossing glaciers, coils on & tied off. Instead of bringing the rope back down to my tie in loop alignment with a screwgate or a prussik, could I do it with a ropeman, thus effectively having it already in place should I fall in. My thinking is that the small length of slack rope this creates would let me put on a prussik for a foot loop quickly & hopefully this set up would be quick & efficient.
Are there any errors I've missed, or (constructive) comments,
Cheers, K
