First time a quickdraw has ever come undone! And on the first bolt of the traverse... Watch out the rope drag is killer.

Clip your draw so that the gates face the direction you are coming from. Rope should run out of the biner and over the spine.

If you clip the other direction the draw will spin with rope drag and the gate of the bolt biner will be opened as it presses against the bolt hanger. Been there, happy to not have fallen after that! Sep 9, 2016

It's a little more correct to say that you want the spine to face the direction TO WHICH you're headed ;) May 23, 2017
