Todd Skinner

Todd Skinner, Big Wall free-climbing afficionado, died in Yosemite, possibly as a result of belay-loop failure. It is sad news – he was a true great in world climbing. 
The equipment failure aspect is a bit worrying, and I have to say, I have never entirely trusted the things….just don’t have any redundancy built in. It will also make me think twice about abbing off just a belay loop in future…
