I was directly involved and there was about a 25% increase.

Well, 25% is quite considerable. It's possible I've given insurance companies too much credit. I wonder what other gyms in the region (past and present) with different practices had paid in comparison.

One of our local gyms has Grigris anchored to the ground, and you also clip them to your belay loop. Wouldn't be my first choice of methods, but it works fine.

What do you mean "take your hand off of the rope"?

Which gym?
