Incorporate The Monkey Tail:

 

Step 1: Remove the carabiner from the lead eye splice

 

Step 2: Place eye splice through the ring of The Monkey Tail, allowing the MT to sit on top of the friction Hitch.

 

Step 3: The eye splice is placed around the stem. (now similar to a dynamic system) Keeping in mind that the MT works best if loading against the ring

 

Step 4: Tie a Blake’s Hitch below the eye on the climbing line, tied toward the stem. This would leave a small portion of climbing line with eye splice past the MT. This has now created a choking single line system

 

Step 5:  Place Carabiner back into eye of climbing line (this is used as stopper and for retrieval)

 

Step 6:  Place fall of line into the carabiner. A Gri-Gri or friction hitch can be used. If using a friction hitch remember to load test

 

Step 7:  Descend and re- secure with lanyard

 

Step 8:  Loosen standing parts of line by pulling a small amount of slack into system

 

Step 9:  Pull both portions of line that enter carabiner in the Eye splice (this allows the system to slide down the spar)

 

Step 10:  Take fall out of carabiner. Re- tighten MT around spar.
