I can bet that if I was with Jim, on that rappel, I would of insisted in backing that piece of crappy webbing up.
Having climbed with Jim quite a bit, I have given him grief in the past on being a little too trusting in regard to rappel anchors.
After this incident, he said that he is planning to be extra diligent in this regard.
Jim is still is out there climbing pretty much non-stop, and therefore is exponentially subject to more danger than the average climber.
We rapped of this thing thing 2 years ago, and I gave him some crap on the way down.
