This is one of the most common causes of injuries and even death in rock climbing. I am ok, I am good, I am on, off, tied ...........

The bottom end is this;

1- Always attach yourself with two pieces of cord to any anchor. this includes using the rope as one piece.

2-Never disconnect both pieces at the same time

3_Establish communication first and be clear /Disconnect first piece and put your weight on the rope and ask to make sure you are on belay then disconnect the last piece.

4- Most people are comfortable with one piece of attachment and that is 100% of your life is on 1 link. With two pieces , the chances of failure is 50-50 so even if one link fails, you still got one more attachment that could save your life
