Geek_the_Greek Posted August 31, 2006 Share Posted August 31, 2006 Anchor: Verify it's bomber, that any webbing, rap rings or anything that's part of the anchor is in good condition. Rope: Fed through the anchor correctly, that ends either touch ground, or are even with knots in the end if free hanging. Belay Device: Fed through correctly with biner securing the bight and a quick weight test. Biner: Locked Harness: Double backed and adjusted properly. Rather than this slightly obtuse ARBBH system, I use a similar one with a simpler mnemonic: A - anchor (make sure it looks solid, rope goes through properly) B - buckle (make sure harness buckle is double-backed; not usually an issue rock climbing, but maybe when mountaineering, or if you took harness off to take a crap) C - carabiner (locked) D - device(s) (device properly rigged, both ends through; also, if using backup, backup properly rigged) E - ends (make sure you know where rope ends are (bottom ends); make sure ends are tied together well (top ends) Takes all of 10 seconds to check...A...B...C...D...E...good to go!
