Yep. We probably all have. But, with a single loop of 5mm cord?

That's fine... I've done stuff like that, well usually not girth hitched if you can avoid it because it reduces strength... but tiny little cord for kids running laps? That's seriously disconcerting.

if you noticed my reply was in response to ...

"1. The high girth hitch I assume was problematic because it creates greater torque on the tree
2. Only having a single rope is dumb because there is no backup if the only anchor fails. "

its not the girth hitch thats the problem in this case ... nor even a "single" rope ...
