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

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
