I am imaging myself simul-rapping with a partner, he is on 6 mm and I am on 11 mm static and rope is attached via EDK in to double chain loop on the anchor and bang, there we go , EDK pooped and my partner took 400 footer on the 6mm rope.
More proof that you never actually climb. No one short of a complete moron would try to simul-rap on 6mm. Go ahead and rap on some 6mm. The EDK wont kill you, but Darwinism surely will.


so if no one raps or climb on 6 mm rope then doing a test on EDK serves no purpose unless, a big 900 lbs mama wants to pull the 6 mm rope on double rope rap system and out of his luck, the EDk becomes stuck in some crack and the hand pull forces of the 900 lbs mama causes the rope to break (at EDK) leaving mama on the wall and another job for rescuers .
