Topic - half ropes

taffyboy - on 24 Apr 2013
hi all. i have just invested in a set of half ropes, and my dilema is this. when i climb with a single rope, i reach the top of the pitch and start setting up belay. i put a number of peices in the rock and equalise with a cordalette and tie a masterpoint.i then use a screwgate on my masterpoint to pass my rope through, walk back to the edge and clovehitch to the rope loop on my tie in, i then also belay off the same rope loop, so if my second take a fall the force is directed straight to my anchors, is the process the same with half ropes and can i pass the two ropes through the same krab on the anchor masterpoint, sorry if this sounds a bit long winded.
