What happened to double ropes? 16-Jul-2018 At 4:30:25 PM gfdonc
I don't like using guide mode and retired my compatible belay device years ago in favour of something smaller and lighter.
My 'gold standard' is to belay off a pulley screwgate from the anchor then into my harness. As Mikl points out that makes hauling possible (I've managed to winch someone on an overhanging wall below me) as well as making it possible to escape the belay.
If there isn't a convenient anchor or the belay situation doesn't allow it (top-out on flat surface for example) I'll belay direct from the harness.
