interesting ... but where is the belay device?

for it to be a realistic you need a belay device ...

the other interesting thing is that the guy at the end goes totally hands free on a gri gri with no backups when inspecting the sling ... which is likely more dangerous over time than the very rare occurrence of a true FF2 fall on dyneema ...

which i think goes to show the "fear" people have of dyneema ... vs the everyday hands free use of a gri gri or other such which is much more likely IMO of killing you ...

theres a focus on the things that very likely wont kill you (dyneema is used my many many many climbers in their anchors including guides and professionals, not too many deaths from that) vs other things that very likely will kill you ...
