Climbing technique in a narrow vertical shaft


Active member
reading with interest.. I have the clumsy idiot extra plastic catch on my pantin in case I let my toes drop while bringing up my leg (which I'm repeatedly reminded is compensation for poor technique) .

Wondering if that is helpful in a tight slot as the pantin won't detach -- or a liability as needing to kick it off intentionally will be near impossible
