The American Death Triangle and Other Practical Climbing Techniques
Posted on: March 3, 2008
It frightens me that people are allowed to guide novices and post supposed "safety" videos when they are giving lessons on how to set an American Death Triangle as a toprope anchor. A gem from the video: locking carabiners add redundancy. Absolutely ridiculous. Also, who always carries around 60+ feet of webbing when they crag? I'm glad people are posting comments to warn anyone who might think this is credible.
