Hi Beck,
you mustn't have seen the DMM video about not using slings for this!! Glad you didn't fall.........static loaded slings snap, dyneema at slightly lower loads than nylon.

Haha, I actually have seen the DMM video. But at the time, it was very much a comfort thing to stop me completely papping myself!!

What factor would this fall be? Not enough to snap a sling me thinks.

No way will the sling snap with a fall like that.
Also everyone I saw on the camino del ray just used slings or did not bother clipping in at all
