If you had seen the manufactuers rep demonstration outside the Plano
(Dallas) HamCom convention arena, you would never use a climbing belt
again, as your sole piece of climbing gear."If "you have a bare-lanyard and
fell; you would hit the end of that lanyard with 2500# of hip and spine bone
breaking force. You might not die; but I'll bet you will have trouble
walking the remainder of your life.
