Top Tips #23 - The Hex-tender

The Hex-tender

We’ve all been there.  The end of a long lead and you've placed more wires than you expected.  You now still have a way to go and yet, when you place your next wire and reach down for an extender (quickdraw), you get that sinking feeling as you realise you’ve used up your last one.  

There may be a quick and easy solution.  If you have hexes your harness they can become a hex-tender.  Simply pull the sling away from one end of the sling and the tape is then all you need to create a quickdraw replacement.  

Much better than clipping directly to the carabiner and the wire getting pinged out - you now might just make it to that finishing hold safely………
