/ Ropeman mk1
Also, after a bit of playing around over the weekend my ropeman (mk1, rated 10mm-11mm) seems to work fine with a half rope, any one got more experience with using this ropeman and skinnier ropes, maybe with how they perform with icy ropes too?
Look at the instructions to see the breaking loads on 8.5mm rope.
I would tie off with a knot and use a clamp or prussik to climb the rope if necessary.
