the autoblock wasnt clipped in period ...
Looks to me like it was attached to the leg loop and the rope. See 1:26 for a shot of the autoblock's attachment to the brake strand.

That said, it looks like he had not much more than one full rap around the rope.

Edit: 0:58 shows the attachment to the leg loop.
