I was looking at a post of Dr. Piton's and i read something about jugging with one ascender and a gri gri. I can't find the post any more, but what was he talking about? And why not just use two ascenders?

Nope, it aint about the Frog system.

It is for cleaning. To get all the details you will ever need:

Was there something wrong with the way in which I had already posted the SAME link?

Good information. However, not having read all of it thoroughly, I will just add that I use two Petzl ascenders and a Croll or Shunt attached to the chest/waist area.

That's me. Dr. Piton knows the better way though...

If you had read it thoroughly, you would have realised that we are not talking about pure ascending, but cleaning.

I am sure you dont use three ascenders (or two and a shunt) when you are cleaning. Or if you do, then you are definitely a patient guy.

I think it should stay, as a testament to the incredibly over-complex attempt at an index. How the F is anybody supposed to find anything? I sure as hell can't. How about a simple index, like that found in a book, rather than a book that leads to an encyclopedia?

No worries, when I think about it I have actually done the same thing once or twice...

Therefore I am the last person who should be complaining!

Cheers

Fishy.

oh that wouldn't be any fun. the index itself is actually a fairly entertaining read.

If your thinking ptpp's index to his info is way over the top, timpanogos made a pretty good one part way down in this thread: PTPP's "better way"
Its a lot shorter and skips the choss (like all the self-promotion and rant index). But no doubt it isn't as funny. Kinda like "plain vanilla" instead of "tooti fruiti".
