  prusic
  Posted by: Mattt on Jun-12-13 9:15 AM (EST)
 

prusic knots for me, and a Bachman knot at the anchor. to act as a one way ratchet so that the prusics can be reset/moved down the rope as needed - the Bachman holds the taut rope you've just pulled the slack out of, so you can move the prusics out again and reset for a second pull - most likely you will only be able to set up the Z for a short pull, unless you have a lot of rope to work with. if you are not using a static/rescue line, you'll be doing a lot of pulling to get the slack out, and you can lose the mechanical advantage of the Z, so you may need to reset
