Tito Traversa Killed in a Fall 18-May-2018 At 5:13:44 PM Dr Nick
I disagree, given that the various versions of those keepers have had warnings about not clipping in to them rather than using them to secure the bottom krab since forever. I find it interesting that apparently the manufacturer did not have a warning attached, but that could be a garbled account without knowing the exact model of draw. I don't recall ever getting a sling like that without some kind of warning.

I know the idea with climbing is to take personal responsibility, but we get our partners to double check our stuff for a reason - people stuff up. In the case of a young kid, I reckon the care factor has to go up and the accompanying climbers should have taken a closer look. I'd like to think that draws configured as shown would stand out like dog's balls, but I also know that I pay more attention to other people's gear than a lot of people (joys of working in a gym, I can still spot a non-doubled back buckle from a disturbing distance).
That said, I don't think it's a *criminal* lack of care given that Tito was a reasonably experienced climber .
