Was your rope frozen? Was your body frozen rigid? Was your harness frozen? Its all about the system. It has already been shown that the biggest risk with frozen slings and ropes is the micro trauma caused by ice crystals forming inside the structure (i.e. between the strands). Even then with a bunch of strands, as you find in the construction of a sling or rope, a user should notice the performance differences well before failure.
