I'm not talking about breaking the biner. I talking about sharp edges cutting the rope which appears to be the case here. I'm still having a problem that anybody cannot tell that the biner in question had the potential for causing a big problem.

You can dress this up with all the excuses you want. If this is the state of the union with regards to sport climbing, then there is a real problem.

There is no excuse based on how rad, bitch'n and cool sport climbing is. That biner has bad shit written all over it.

What part do you not understand here? First bolt. High fall factor. Badly worn biner with sharp edges.

Rope cut.

Jeeze, what a surpise. Defending this is does not lend credence to your case, nor does my lack of climbing steep overhanging routes.

Simple, I see gear like that, I'm not trusting my life to it.

If you want, then be my guest.

Maybe you need to take a break from sport climbing and get back to trad where we actually consider things like this.

I'm gonna end my part in this. I've made my statements. I have a lot of respect for you Jay. But this is one area I cannot even begin to agree with you on. There is no excuse under these circumstances for trusting your life to something like that.
