Topic - Self belay using a Petzl Shunt

plogan5 - on 19 Mar 2014
Hi,

Thanks to everyone for your helpful comments on the previous query I posted recently;

http://www.ukclimbing.com/forums/t.php?t=581531

Taking the advice, I have now got the Petzl Shunt but I am seeking some advice on how to decend after it becomes loaded. I have tried it (under controled conditions) as an acender / auto blocker and it seems great. However, when loaded by body weight it seems to be very diffifuclt to decend under control.

I don't think I'm using it with all the correct bits of kit. Can you help me understand how to use it properly please?

Many thanks again.

Paul
