Yet you tie off with a single "daisy".

Trust issues...ha!

Just sayin'....

It's not a daisy chain which is a no-no at belay stations. It's a Sterling PAS (14kN), tied into both waist and leg loops, and both bolts. Unlike, the Metolius PAS it's nylon webbing which can be shock loaded (Sterling spec = 3 factor 2 falls). No different than rappelling from a single belay loop (BD Harness typical belay loop strength = 15kN) or tying into a single rope.

I got a bad taco and had a gnarly 24 hr waste loop a while back. . .

Stud bolts in the 'matrix' and overcoming trust issues on my first visit to Maple Canyon. Great place to climb!
