>> What sort of 'weird sh*t' are you talking about??

I have been attacked by bees twice and a falcon once, and I was happy to be able to let my autoblock take my weight and use both hands. A mate was struck by rockfall while abseiling on Cannon Cliff and credits his backup for his life (he just got a bruised arm, but lost control of his rope). These experiences are rare, but they happen and are difficult to predict.

I have been a bit forward with my views here because I think abseil backups have received a raw deal on this thread. I've made my point so I'll shut up about it now. Thanks for your patience.
