A friend commented about some recent testing that demonstrated how a girth-hitched sling--threaded through a harness' tie-in's (typical configuration for clipping into an anchor or extending a rap device)--was drop-tested and broke at some surprisingly-low force. My thought is: How good IS the girth hitch? In the past, I've thought nothing of girth-hitching two slings together to create a longer connection...but is that a good practice? I'm thinking the climbing community's collective borg-brains might shed some insight on this...
