Rope on rope friction is the leading argument for not joining ropes after they have been separated. The Dano case is totally different though.
In other to get a significant difference in stretch between the 2 ropes, one of them would need serious drag. In that case you wouldn't be clipping it. Furthermore the ropes would need to slide of over the other.

These are the 2 theories. Until I found the email from Mammut. One statement but from a reputable source.
Does anyone have a test or study to the contrary. There are a couple of blogs but again I think this is more theory than actual data.

Sure would like to know what Jim @Sterling has to say. :-)
