Then simply slide the Prussick til the sag is right and be done.
This should keep everything together and be very easy to set-up and take down.
Am I missing anything here?
I tried doing this with some half inch thick rope I hade and it worked fine but the rope lent itself well to holding prusiks like climbing rope. I don't know about the line that comes on the Hennessy. Is the Hennessy rope slick at all? It look small on some of the videos I've seen. What would you use for the prusik?
