I use a lightweight full body harnesswith no padding(Avery) and a frog made with webbing, croll and a left handed assention. the cows tails are connected to the half round and a single footloop(for both feet) makes it easy to grab the rope and pull the rope through the croll when low on the rope. For desending I use and R8(can be rigged two ways) and is easly locked off and at no point is it ever detached from the rope and the harness at the same time. I love it. I trust it and where it all the time in a cave and Ive praticed alot with this system. I havent timed myself yet but compared to those who I've practiced with and caved with, I am by far the fastest on a rope(OK so im braggin just a bit but its true). I'm new to the caving comunity but not caving and would love to go caving with some of Ya'll. I will be caving in the Great Basin area the end of may with the Silver Sage Grotto from Twin Falls. I hope that MY head hasn't gotten so big that I make a mistake and get hurt. Pride has a way of getting people hurt
