Dodgy toprope anchor testing 14-Oct-2015 At 9:32:30 PM mikllaw
To the lucky people who made this toprope anchor with (new) Bunnings cord and a new screwgate, I have your anchor and 4 mats that were blowing around the crag. Contact me and I'll give you some free climbing rope.

note unique 3 into 2 overhand

Out of interest I tested the cord over fat biners in 2 configurations, clove hitched and with an f8 in each end. the failure loads were 2.4 and 2.7 kN respectively. Could you have been toproping on the bunning cord? I think it could have failed in a toprope fall. Maybe that's why you left in a hurry.

(The core is also polyester, but like a cigarette filter, and could be torn by hand)
