Tyrolean Traverse

My preferred set-up for a tyrolean traverse includes:
-Petzl Tandem Pulley on the bottom
-Petzl Mini Traxion on top, for progress capture

For heavier climbers, climbers with a backpack, and long traverses, I add a chest harness to the system (the BD Vario Chest is excellent--in this photo we've improvised with a sewn runner)
