Topic - Ascending rope with two knots

humptydumpty - on 23 Sep 2013
I've tried ascending a rope (dynamic, free-hanging) with 2 knots, and it doesn't seem very easy.

The setup I tried was:

upper knot: prussik; long sling for stepping in
lower knot: prussik, french prussik (tried both); attached to belay loop of harness

Sliding the upper knot and standing in the sling is easy enough, but it's very tricky to pull rope through the lower knot. French prussik seemed slightly better, but not significantly.

Is my setup completely wrong, or is there a better knot to use at harness level?
