When you do an alpine coil you coil the rope around your chest, pull a bite behind the coil, tie an over hand knot in front of the coil, and clip the bite to your belay loop. This would in effect place the force of a fall on your chest where you tied the over hand knot.
Does anyone pull the bite through their belay loop prior to bringing behind the coil and then tie the over hand knot? I’ve been playing with this and it puts the load of a fall back to your belay loop and is a little more comfortable. Wondering if there are any down sides to this or any safety issues?
Thanks in advance for the help/tips.
