Re: Mast climbing

I used a similar system only 6:1

1) even at 6:1 I wouldn't call it 'easy' to hoist my fat ass up.

2) It takes forever to run through that much rope.

3) As you said there is a height penalty.

So I guess I'm curious how you find it to work going up and what's your age/weight/build?

Like I said I found it pretty difficult, I'm 43 slight to med build and 180#.
