I usually just hang one of my shoes off the end of the rope. You don't need too much weight on it, especially with a minitraxion/microcender. I usually use a doubled over rope with a minitrax on one line and a microcender/rope man 2 on the other. When j get to the top I usually chuck a Grigri 2 on and rip off, unless I forgot the Grigri and then i use a munter.

And I still fear my wife more than gravity;)
