Which version of the Tenax 4 did you get? I see the dual pitch ropes but don't know whether it uses the friction rope in the middle or the steel rod with the foot adjustment.

Its the standard friction system...I went with it on the recommendation of my mentor, there is nothing in the boot that you have to push off of . There is a bit more detail on this on the Woodey Valley website.
