Ascending can be done one of two ways (there are more, but in this manual we will look at two) — on a single rope or on a double rope. Both have their advantages and disadvantages which will be discussed in this section.
(Note — All of the active climbing rope attachments to the Ness Saddle are made to the delta ring, the triangle shaped screw-link provided with the saddle. With commercial saddles the attachment point varies between a single D-ring, double D-rings or double D-rings with a spreader. Attachments are made to either the D-ring(s) or to the spreader with a locking carabiner.
