Topic - shunt

afshapes - on 07 Nov 2012
I've just started top rope soloing using a shunt, all is good but I've s few niggles, firstly getting the tension right on the rope seems to be a problem , too tight makes climbing at the start hard but then towards the top with rope stretch there's a load of slack and the shunt doesnt run up the rope. Would a static rope be better, the routes I'm on are 30m plus. The second issue is that my shunt doesn't release very well, in fact its impossible to descend and having read that you mustn't grab the shunt I feel there may be an issue ? Hope this makes sense
