... people taught with ATCs are VERY conscious of their brakes ...
Ever watched people belaying on ATC's in climbing gyms ? I often wonder what happens when they go outdoors belaying. At least with auto lockers their climbing buddies stand half a chance.
My gym is pretty decent ... Maybe yours aint
If anyone is depending on autolockers to make up for a lack of skill ... Yr just asking for it ... As the not infrequent gri gri drop threads prove over and over again
