Couldn't resist it.

How mushroom at that belay.
Mark Collins - 09/Oct/17
Wish I'd have thought of that!

Belaytus Edulis?

Hope he didn't take a flyer(garic) off that

That's taking a bit of a Liberty slinging that Stump. Be careful of those Deceiver's you may end up with a Weeping Widow!

The use of 2 karabiners is a little over the top methinks!

Keep 'em coming!

I do like the belt and braces back up with the mini mushroom, though you really should have equalised them - if the little one rips, the big one would be shock loaded and more likely to fail. You are setting a poor example by posting such bad practice on here.

I think he'd left the slack to avoid a shock load on the belay, although worse still he'd clipped it to a gear loop ????

There's definitely 'shroom for improvement with that setup..
Samuel Wainwright - 11/Oct/17
Seriously though, you should probably have clove hitched it.

Fungimentally desporeate.

Re-clove hitching, I think there was a concern about compromising the strength of the sling.

I wish I had known. I was on the other end of the rope!

This doesnt leave 'mushroom' for error

Holy shit-aki... what a liberty (cap).
Blake - 16/Oct/17
I'd always suggest sage or parsley with mushrooms, not cloves
Stroppy - 17/Oct/17
Hey this is only acceptable when there's snow on the ground! Haha, great shot

Don't usually like that kind of thing but made me smile
Just as good as some of the belays I've seen on top of Stanage!
