Topic - Protecting Scrambles when Soloing

bowls - on 08 Jul 2012
Just wondering what thoughts users have of doing some of the harder scrambling routes solo and protecting a couple of bits using some long slings from a harness. I soloed Clogwyn Y Person Arete yesterday evening, but put harness on (in case I had to ab off for any reason), on a couple of sections where a slip would have left me in a mess, I managed to flip a long sling over a rock spike, which in theory would have helped protect me if I should have slipped on that particular move:

Now I expect responses saying that slings aren't dynamic and I shouldn't be soloing where i need protection etc. But would be interested to hear others views on doing this..

Thanks
