MOUNTAIN TOOLS DAISY CHAIN

The sport, trad and big wall climbers’ secondary attachment point - for position and convenience. Girth hitch into harness (at tie-in point or belay loop) for an "unclippable" attachment, then clip a locking carabiner into end loop with bar-tacks - this is what you clip to your anchor, ascender, etc. If you need to clip in "short" (reduce the length of the tensioned chain), clip a second locking carabiner to a middle loop and then clip it to the end biner. This biner-to-biner connection is necessary to avoid total failure if the ANCHOR CHAIN becomes overloaded - and is common to all "daisy" chains. Remember it is always good practice to anchor the climbing team with the rope, stay tied in (to the rope) while ascending and always have two separate (redundant) connections to your anchor.
Choose 11/16" Nylon (slightly more dynamic for aid climbing) or lighter weight 12mm Ultratape for all around use.
strength: (pocket) 1100 lbf (4.8 kN); (end to end) 4950 lbf (22 kN)
