    I like putting "handles" in my prusiks... a little loop of cord can give you a lot of leverage on the prusik, and maybe even give the prusik more grip to prevent slipping.

    Be very careful with the Chameleon. You'll set it up to test it, slide into it, and then wake up nine hours later.

    Don't make any plans, is all I'm saying.
