Not sure if this was mentioned here but the august fatality on el cap was similar to this report on june . As I mentioned before, I did get a chance to talk 1on1 to one of the reps from a US rope mfg this past weekend and I mentioned that may be its worth to looking to adding extra protection to beginning and end of the climbing rope so it could handle and resist rope cut during rock fall.
if I get some time, I may do some testing on this subject in 2014.
