Video on a method for a non-SRT leader to ascend a rope

In my Level 2 notes there’s a page on an improvised technique that non-SRT leaders could use to ascend a short pitch. It’s great for short pitches (and really easy to switch from up to down) but it’s certainly nowhere near as efficient as SRT so I wouldn’t be ditching the SRT rig in a hurry!

It’s well worth having a play with but does require a belay device that locks off such as a RIG, ID, Gri Gri or STOP. Have a look…
