Wouldn't the top pieces and the pottom piece be loaded independantly, depending on the force being up (belayer being pulled up), or down (the leader falling onto the belay)?
The only time all pieces would be loaded together is when the force is in a horizontal plane at 90 degrees from the belayer (outwards or left/right)?
