Hi all, Been a lurker for some time and finally in need of some advice. I am thinking of making an emergency escape rope with a single strand of Paracord. 50feet of Parachord takes minimal space and can reach to the ground from a 4th floor window. Paracord is capable of supporting up to 550lbs - that's more than sufficient to support a persons weight. However the thinness of the cord makes it very difficult to hold on to - can severely cut into your hand. First question - If you had suitable carabiners how would you go about tying it securely to the end of the paracord? Second question - what could you use to "grip" the paracord on your decent down - some sort of handle? Another carabiner? Third question - any particluar way to wrap the paracord around yourself (like absailing) that will allow you to control your decent? Cheers, Bogus.
