5 5

Like a PFD for Climbing.

I bought this to use as a personal anchor and it does the job very well.
Doubles as a dynamic draw etc. It hasn't failed yet (as you can probably tell) after several months of abuse so that is a good sign. Its pretty light, and much thinner and classier than a nylon sling.
Highly recommended.

Not reccomended at all... http://www.climbing.com/skill/anchors-away/

Actually... using the sling as a PAS needn't be unsafe. You just have to make sure that there's minimal slack in the system. This applies to any sort of PAS (e.g.; Sterling Chain Reactor).

This way, even if the ledge breaks/you fall there's minimal shock load on the system. If this is impossible, tie into the rope or use a Yates Screamer.
