Because I'm dim, and only decided to use the spirit level AFTER I mounted it haha. Fear not, I have procured several washers and someday soon I may even find the motivation to fix it

Ah, I thought for some perverse reason perhaps you thought the slopers were not nails enough already? :)

Only maybe if you were hanging from the holds near the middle, hanging with 2 arms from holds nearer the sides, the load (your body) is in the middle so the force in the fingers isn't straight down but actually at a vector, so the curve of the board should act to keep the loading equal across all digits.
