If one really wanted to be a stickler for detail. Technically speaking the cinching hitch doesn't actually weaken the sling any more than a regular girth hitch - it does however increase the force on the "pulley" end of the sling. In a frictionless world it would create a 2-1 pulley system thereby making the effective strength of the sling half it's "normal" girth-hitched strength.

Is that a sufficient explanation Andy? ;-) Jun 13, 2011

Half the people can be part right all of the time but not all the people can be all right all of the time. Abraham Lincoln said that. Jun 3, 2011

Lie!!! You made that up. It's more like 95%.

I'd fall on that, but if I did I would quit climbing immediately in shame for falling on a 5.4. Jun 3, 2011
