Re: Mast (Climbing)- No Halyards

Two prussics are how I have done it. wrap around the mast, advance, step up, advance step up. at the spreaders tie in a new one above them and repeat. This knot is only for those with experience as if tied incorrectly can fail. In a past life i was an arborist so climbing was an everyday occurrence and am very comfortable with its use.
