    I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong with my madrock lifeguard belay.

    That’s definitely true, it’s just not super easy when it’s jammed up like that under load.

    One Sticking Safety

    I worry about the proliferation of videos like this one. The guy certainly means well and mentions things related to safety, yet he seems to be unaware of side or cross loading a carabiner and what would happen if he was well over his attachment point and then fell with a static rope and a...
