One Eye Split Tail

After my basic learning on the traditional System I changed over to the split tail system and I have never gone back. This is so easy to use in switch overs in the tree that just for that reason I would use it exclusively. The fact that it can be manufactured in a basic splicing class is another fact. I have made a few now with Nick's instructions and they work great and are safe and very durable.



As nick mentioned below "Have your sling made with small eye just big enough to get the carabiner into (I call that a "carabiner eye"). The eye itself will grab onto the carabiner. You will have a cleaner system than with the girth hitch method described above." Overall the fact that my climbing line is protected from mayor friction damage is another consideration to think about with this system of climbing. Yes, you will have to carry one extra piece of gear but it is well worth it. Give it a try and you will never go back to the traditional system.
