I recall this photo being taken by John Sherman. Sent in to Mammut and they said it was cut. The sling was part of a directional on a rap line he was using to "clean" a route. Failed after some bouncing while prying off loose blocks. Whether it was animal chews, malicious intent, or whatever the synopsis was cutting. There is a whole report that Mammut did on this sling somewhere out in the nether regions of the internet. Or I might have it. Oct 13, 2009
Fail or cut? Did someone ever find out? Oct 7, 2009
