BTW - the original question here was about rapping off of a Spectra sling... not your average, nylon webbing.

Zach.

Pulling your rope through a sling will not burn the rope.

The rope is moving. The sling is not.

If you were half as badass as you like to say you are, you'd know this. I've rapped off many, many slings, and THE ROPE DOES NOT GET HURT!!!

You really think that pulling a rope through a nylon sling will hurt the rope, whereas pulling the rope over a sharp granite edge will not? PLEASE.

Geeeeeez. :shock:

Hey, Pbelitz... try reading the whole thread before being a prick.

OK... so, point out to me where I said that pulling a rope through standard, nylon webbing would burn the rope.

And, I'm pretty confident that I can back up my assessment of some of the climbing that I've done..even though I don't spend a lot of time dick-waving around here to substantiate it.

pbelitz,

No, I'm not a sport climber, and, yes, I did get the insult.

Glad you know the physics of ropes and slings under a dynamic load, you must be a genius, but I guess you already knew that.

I'm so in awe of your experience that I retract everthing I said.

Rap off your sling because its perfectly safe. Your lawyer will most likely sue but you ass will still be DEAD.

Go climb some more scary desperate shit, poser.

Have fun, climb on, Bro.

Andy

Zach, my point with that paragraph was that risk assessment is prerequisite to risk management. We're arguing about something that isn't a risk factor at all. But I think I'm gonna go for a walk now, then pump some iron.

Pump it, baby!

Damnit.. now I feel not only scorned but fat... My weights have been collecting dust for a few months.

Summary so far:

dude - "Should I worry about this fairly insignificant detail?"

Zach - "YOU'RE GONNA DIE!"

skykilo - "But I'm not dead...? Also, look my cool badass photos."

Zach - "STFU skier!"

dishw dave - "Dudes, were talking about dyneema..."

skykilo - "I love you long time for $12.57."

....

Zach - "I really haven't said enough already."

skykilo - "I have better ways of killing myself than rapping off of slings."

pbelitz - "I am capable of writing an unoffensive post."

skykilo - "Hey look I have more cool badass photos for you to look at."

Zach - "I can post badass too."

pbelitz - "But this is how I usually post."

Zach - -slap-

pbelitz - -slap-

Zach - "Did I mention that I have the last word again?"

skykilo - "Actually, I'm a pretty nice guy."

Zach - "Yeah me too."

pbelitz - "But I'm not! :twisted: "

I love it!

Heuvon, if you're ever down south I'll buy you a beer for that summary. Priceless. No beer for the rest of you...

:)

Well, maybe sky. I did like the badass photos.

Speaking of which, here's a shot I took Sunday of a mystery boarder riding down the north face of Telegraph Peak (San Gabriel Mountains):
