Yes, you can have a loop for both feet. You should be able to make one yourself with about 10-15' of cordage ranging in size from 5-9mm

Here it is thanks to Tengu (and Elliot Su):

Double foot loop prusik tied with triple crown knot

Once you try it there's no going back to the single footloop!

Tree boy,

where are located?

Since you are starting out, do you have someone that has been TTC for awhile that you could climb with?

TreeBoy,

If you use a handheld ascender, you can attach your footloops to the ascender and not the downrope (below the blake).

That way you do not have to stop to pull it up.

I started with the foot loop myself, then made a bunch of the double foot loops for my clients. I no longer use the foot loop now - body thrust it up is much faster for me.

Keep climbing!

TreeBoy,

A Spanish Bowline also works well for double loops, and is easier to tie, untie, and fine-tune. There's also something called the Double Alpine Butterfly, which can be tied very quickly, but the loops lay a little too close to one another for my tastes. Here's a neat page on various double loops, how to tie them, and their comparative advantages/disadvantages.

Hang on up there!

It's better up there!
