Yeah, sorry guys. It was the first time climbing that route, and I think I was a little nervous rappelling off of it. Jan 4, 2017

Or at least threaded through rings/chain links that don't lie flat against the rock... Regardless, nobody is going to die here. Forces during rapping shouldn't cause a bolt to fail, and rap rings directly on bolt hangers is a common scenario. Jun 26, 2016

The rope should be threaded throw the lowest chain links. Less force on the bolts (high angles will multiply force) and easier pull. Jun 25, 2016
