Wire your Pecker!

I've got a quick question for you Aid fellers. I just got a few BD Peckers and I was wondering if I should swage a cable to them like the RURP's or if you typically put a biner through the hole. The cable would make your reach less..but might give you better leverage? I don't know? What do you guys do?

Place a Pecker in a flaring crack or groove and try to clip it with a biner.





Use #3 cable. There is a little info in my #2 copperhead thread but I should extrapolate on that a bit when I get to it... (article)

Webbing works fine and is more flexible than wire...I don't prefer to fall on hooks anyway :roll:

Very cool. It’s about time. Hmmm… the dual tie-off/cable hole design looks familiar…

But why #2 cable??? Why, why, why???????
