TR Self belay backup options 18-Feb-2015 At 7:17:20 PM Zarb
I'm actually going to delve in to a little bit of self belay TR myself, I have a Silent Partner lying around that is yearning for some use.

In the instruction manual, it says that you shouldn't work routes on it, and that you should be doing routes well below your ability. Is this just for self belay leading? Surely it's fine to work routes on TR with the Silent Partner?

I was just going to set up a similar system to the OP.
-Weighted 10.5mm for the Silent Partner with a bombproof anchor at the top.
-Second rope running beside the 10.5, with loops at intervals to clip in to for backup.

Should the second rope be on a separate anchor? Or is the same anchor for both ropes fine (as long as it's solid).
