OtterGreen is on a distinguished road
i use my arborist climbing saddle and two prusiks, the upper attatched to the bridge of the harness and the other with to foot straps. i sinch up to the spreaders with two other prusik lines ready to go so i can retie above them. the prusik will not slide if you provide enough turns to support your weight and need to physically unwind them for them not to bite. to descend just apply pressure above the knot and come down slow.
