Looks to me like he used it to protect the first section of roof, but jettisoned it so he didn't have rope drag towards the end. Nowt to do with the swing I reckon.

Good man. Great stuff. I enjoyed watching that.
Wow, great effort. He made the first half looks so easy. The second half looks very hard indeed.
