top rope soloing 29-May-2007 At 5:39:16 PM ant
I'm using a petzl mini-traxion, connected at my chest harness via a tie-off from my waist. Not using a back-up mini-traxion or prussic, however I fix a second rope with figure 8's every now and again, and clip in to a HMS on my belay loop as I ascend.

Petzl rope clamps will shred your rope given enough slack in the system, however I do not know of anybody that has experienced this first hand.

I tried the gri-gri, pulley & prussic and petzl shunts, and found that the mini-traxion best maintained tension in the rope. The shunt was good too, but it's not recommended for over-hanging terrain (got to love the petzl "skull & cross bones")
