Does it have potential for top rope soloing, "shunting"?

3 Dec, 2020

I was wondering the same thing, but as a back up to the shunt rather than instead of.

3 Dec, 2020

People do use devices similar to this, like the CT rollnlock. 4kN breaking strain seems a little too close for comfort to me though...

3 Dec, 2020

very true however I'm not sure a static fall would ever generate that kind of impact force.

You'd have to fall from a long way onto it to do any damage.

Some people use LSK semi static rope for shunting which isn't covered by that link.

You're right that it would probably be ok, it's just that I'm coming from an industrial climbing and mr background where safety factors are much higher.
