Wow. Thats spooky stuff. Did you have to change pants before the redpoint burn? Unimpressed

I don't have anything to add on the prevention front, other than to mention that the biner might not have been able to bind against the rock in that way if the bolt had been a glue-in with a larger opening and rounded metal surfaces. I'm just talking out of my ass here but having seen how the top biner moves within certain glue-ins and settles back, I feel like the chances would have been less.

Edited to remove a reference to a specific bolt manufacturer. I won't associate their product with my speculations
