Carrot bolts with knotted sling? Please help 3-Jan-2012 At 7:59:39 PM climbingjac
Terrible idea as the guide said. You did absolutely the right thing - point out your concerns. If this person has so little regard for your safety, might be best to find someone else to climb with.

To be clear: yes, you can put a sling on a carrot.... it is generally something you would do if you found yourself caught out. For instance, half way up a climb where you did not expect to find a carrot. In that instance, if there were no other options, you might opt for the sling on the carrot. Personally I'd only do so if the carrot would protect me from a longer fall. If the sling came off and I would this hurt myself or die, I would personally choose to back off the climb. I personally would not choose to sling two carrots in a row with slings. Climbing is a dangerous sport as it is. Why deliberately make it extremo dangerous?
