Hi, quick question. What is that edge protector with the roller you are using. Looks sweet.

Hi Alex,
I'm pretty sure that was an SMC/Russ Anderson RoofRoller.  Very efficient and smooth :)

By the looks of it you are using a new rope. In practice they are not new very long. So how would the same test go with an old and a bit more dried out rope? I also think that the type of ascender also makes a big difference. Some have more aggressive teeth on them.

Alex, that's an excellent question about the age of rope, and one that we would be curious to perform testing on. Also interesting to note that we used a Petzl Ascender which is more on the aggressive side.

However, our main goal was to show that it's a bad idea to use your handle ascender as a back up. I think we've shown that pretty conclusively.

This is incorrect information. You cannot use an id as a fall arrest device!
that and the slippage is not consistent and very dependable on the state of the rope and diameter etc.wet or dry etc..

Story
Introduction
Dutch photographer specialized in photography in hard to reach locations through the use of rope access techniques. No place to hard to photograph.
Also shoots weddings, events and action/adventure sports.

Right now I'm busy setting up a new category in my photography portfolio about which I am very excited. More info on that later!
