The soloists rig is simplicity itself and starts with a D-Shaped Maillon on the harness, to minimise gear movement and provide a positive transmission of energies from the Rocker to the harness in the event of a fall.A short tough Tape-Sling connects this to a large Krab,which in turn holds the Rocker in place.The sling allso positions the Rocker high on the chest,well above the climbers centre of gravity.
All the self-belay devices in my blogs are chosen for their ability to accept a variety of rope diameters for multiple activities.And none of those mentioned have "teeth" that can cause damage to the rope-mantle.The Rocker can take ropes from 8mm to 11mm.I use 8.5mm ropes for Solo Alpine climbing and the heavier gauges for crags in UK summer and winter conditions.
Some people prefer a cylindrical shaped rope-bag suspended from the harness or attatched to the side of their sacks.
My preference is for a lightweight "drawstring bag" that can be worn on the back or packed into the top of ones alpine sack with the rope feeding over my right shoulder.Packing the rope into the bag is a simple matter of first,removing the kinks by pulling it through both hands.
My own preference for a soloists rope system is depicted below,with a Perlon static pulldown rope running parralel to the dynamic climbing rope,and connected at each end with a double fishermans knot.
