ive got two 20' ladder stands to put out i plan to install safety ropes in both stands so i can use a prussic knot from the ground to the stand. ive pretty much used my climber exclusivly for years and was able to use my harness as i climbed. my question is if anyone else has used this style of climbing and if so what type of rope did you use ,where did you get it , what was the cost ,and have you ever arrested a fall with it? i know from our fall prevention traing at work that a tether and anchor point should be capable of holding 5,000 lbs to insure a safe arrest. ive looked at ropes at the local hardware stores and have found nothing that comes close to this even though they look really stout. actuall climbing rope from online sources is pretty pricy and comes in lengths way longer than i need.any help would be appreciated.
