Ah, um, there's a better way of doing that

Naw. There's nothing better than double fisherman knotting 2 60m ropes. Except a single 80m rope, which I didn't have during this ascend.

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

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.

The rope is going through the lowest part of the chains. Look at the photo again.
