Topic - Sacrificial lanyard attachments?

Jamie B - on 04 Feb 2013
Just a thought - given that spinner leashes cost 40 for the set and are liable to part if you fall on them, is there an argument for attaching them to your axes with a very thin loop of cord (say 3mm)? That way when you have your lob it's the loop that gets ripped open and not the leash?

On the subject of lanyards, I've noticed a huge reduction in faff/tangles since I started attaching them to my abseil loop with a snaplink rather than having them hard-locked into my harness. This means that I can quickly unclip the axes rather than the runner if I get in a tangle! Also I can get them away from me when I want to belay. Personally I'd recommend trying this.
