I've wondered at the practice of clipping two biners to a hanger instead of just one. Why was it done in this case?

In the past, I figured it was just to give a little more horizontal play in the rope position, sort of like a miniature quickdraw. But I am not sure that the extra play makes any real difference, and the twisted orientation of the biner relative to the rope may instead create more drag. Anyway, I'm just wondering- It is a fun route to aid in early winter. Sep 5, 2018
