More descending rings.

The rings are rolled aluminum, i.e. hollow. not solid aluminum, not solid steel

Half an hour later, they have fixed half the problem, with all that rope they are using webbing over the rock.


  1. That actually looks fine to me. It's a small pic, but that looks like a standard rappel ring, perfectly adequate for a top rope anchor. That tree looks a bit thin, though. I hope it was equalized properly.

  2. On this one, I have to agree with John. Simply, no reason to use the rap ring. Why not just clip carabiner to nylon sling, eliminate the rap ring totally.
