something that should never have happened. recently happened twice...!

just in case anyone is using long slings with rubber band things. (Which is quite likely because most of us in UCET tend to climb routes using single ropes and quite often need extended quickdraws to straighten the rope a little on long pitches to prevent drags.

Sorry for sounding like the climbing police again but would feel really stupid if i said nothing and someone got hurt :-o

xxxxx

The video at the bottom shows the problem really clearly...
