What would be the plan if you lower someone and person doesn't have the string to climb up at all or if the person falls during you transition/transferring your ATC guide into rasing mode, during those 5-10 seconds, it's totally possible/. If one of those scenarios above happens you would ended up with fully loaded rope, ATC guide in breaking mode/. How would you eraise this now with the fully loaded rope, back up only by your autolock prussik/? This is realeted more to the guiding companies, which lower people that they are not professional climbers so one of those scenarios above could potentially occur. Thank you!
