I was reading through the AAJ, and I came across a report from April this year when somebody died due to an anchor failure. The webbing was joined with some masking tape at the ends, instead of knotted.
The editors note is as follows:
It is — or should be — fairly common knowledge that webbing, unlike rope, comes packaged in this manner.
Has anyone ever seen this? I've been climbing a fair bit of time but I've never seen webbing come pre-packaged with the ends taped. It would be great if anyone can shed some light on where this practice happens, and why, bonus points if you can share a picture of what it looks like too.
