Side loaded perhaps?


  1. John, If idea is to help keep our community safe, then why not add a little bit about how to do it correctly. This picture by it self doesn't help anyone understand why it is wrong or how to do it correctly. Maybe explain the dangers of side loading. Is this two climbing ropes on one anchor?? You might want to explain why this also is not a good idea (ropes build up heat when run against each other - not good).. Are they climbing on both ropes at the same time?

  2. Strenth of carabiners:
    <-> 25kn (end to end)
    v 6kn (side loaded)
