When I lower the jackline to work
on something, pulling it back up is almost impossible. because it starts twisting, the causes the first line split (where the first ring is joined to the line that goes up the mast
spins. This causes the line passing thru that ring to twist around each other and lock things into place so that I just can't haul the line up anymore.
This is a new trick, and it seems to vary depending on things I try to do, pre-twist it the other direction has been the most fruitful thing I've tried, putting a swivel on the rope
so it could spin in place (it won't spin before the rope
is twisted :-(
What is causing this and how do I stop it?
