Topic - Emergency ascendors for ropes less than 8mm

Matt Amos - on 06 Apr 2014
I climb using Edelrid Apus (7.8mm diameter) and as I am heading out to the alps this year I though i had better invest in some sort of ascendor. But looking at Traxions, ropemans and tiblocs, all require a rope with a diameter larger than 8mm. So two things:
Does anyone know of ascendors designed for sub 8mm ropes?
Will a standard tibloc still work, it is only .2 of a mm difference afterall?

Cheers
