this is a good photo of why i call BS when people claim that TR/lowering through the rings is ok and that the rings won't wear a groove because they "rotate". top of incredible handcrack?

Yep, top of IHC. I have seen 15 or 20 kids (camp?) top roping thru the chains on this route before. I guess the counselor/guide didn't want to climb it again to clean and rap. Super weak. We climbed after them, and it looked like a massacre happened under the bulge, blood everywhere!

The rings are supposed to rotate (on their own) and wear evenly. It's no wonder, step onto a climbing gym and see all the automatons being trained to drop the rope directly into the anchors and/or TR on the anchors.
