Re: Climbing mast using Prussik
Key thing with a prussic is to make sure that the ratio between the diameter of your prussic line and the line you are climbing is correct, if your prussic is too thick then it won't grip. I've used them for years in rock climbing, and been up the mast a couple of times, personally I'd trust them over a mechanical system.
It's easier if the line you are climbing (typically a halyard) is held fairly taught.
