Falls on slings!! You should see this....... quite surprising.

An interesting test video which opened my eyes to the limitations of equipment. And being a fat bastard ie. more than 80kg....a little worrying!

The morel of the story....tie in with your rope. Don't attach to the belay with a sling only and certainly dont then step above it.
