    Apologize in advance if this has already been discussed. I searched but couldn't find anything. I have a cougar saddle with the webbing bridge. I've been climbing Blake's, but just recently got a split tail to make advancing a bit quicker. Is there a best way to have a single tie in on the saddle bridge? Right now i clip 2 biners onto bridge, one for splittail and one for terminal end. No problems wit it, but i think id like to get a single tie in to bridge just to clean things up. Any suggestions on what works best?

    Thanks Jed. That's probably the direction I'm heading. Still a beginner, and getting familiar with the basics and trying to keep it simple for now. Trouble is, I like the gadgets and want to try out different stuff also!

    Has anyone seen a good solution to the dilemma of not having a spliced eye on the end of the climbing rope and wanting to use a hitch climber pully, since hitch climber recommends against using termination knots on the carabiner attached to the hitch climber?
