    Is that always your same tie-off end, with the blake's on the other end?
    If it looks like I asked a question, but put a period, it's probably a question.
    Don't know why I'm question-mark challenged online. 😀 New Year's Resolution, better proof reading.

    I usually trade out a climb line or bull rope for a leave rope that is cheap and I don't care about strength on. (My throwlines I do want to stay strong.) I buy the equivalent of the 'plastic' Polypro, truckers rope in 3/8 inch. I also tie it high enough off the ground that no one can reach it overnight. Grab the loop with a pole hook and pull out a slip knot in the morning, coil falls to the ground. (There is also a specific way to reset friction savers remotely, from the ground, at the same time.)

    Yup. Just did. Had time to set a couple of throw lines the day before while the lads were doing some tidy up. Pull climb lines in first thing in the morning and get on it.
    Interesting how a limited gene pool and a limited labor force seem to be so closely related.

    I always leave lines in overnight. I always looks at them as best as I can before climbing on them again too.

    Thanks. Been lurking and the Buzz has been so slow for me lately I thought I'd engage.

    I like how these types of forums are real folks with real knowledge real experience and words to say. Lots of good conversation in a forum like this. Not an excess of trolling, if any at all.

    I've been a firewooder in a prior life. Now I climb trees occasionally on my properties (mostly my families) to maintain what needs maintaining. Started climbing 6 months ago and love it. I notice a lot of the same names on the other forum I'm part of too.
