Now available anywhere with the new apple podcast app for the iphone and ipad. Just search climbing tools while at the gym.
This is another discussion on the merits and pitfalls of lowering off chain ends. Good, bad or ugly this happens and will continue to happen.
We debunk the idea that girth hitching weakens the belay point. This video corrects one small flaw from a previous video. It has come to my attention that certain forums have a high percentage of abusive users. My wings are a shield of steel so I can't be harmed but beware or those who yell loudly and when there point can't be made the get abusive to their fellow forum users. Another thing that I have noticed is that some think climbing harder allows them to know everything. That would be much like measuring intelligence by education. The two are unrelated. I was accused being unprofessional. Since it couldn't have been anything I said I think I have corrected the issue. Lets see if you can spot the difference.
There are links to teh other videos related to lowering off other anchors at the end of this video
