This is how it looked while he was hanging  on it.  He had other gear nearby, so it probably would not have been a disaster if it had popped out.
The happy team admiring his handiwork.  The camalot is clipped to Tricia's harness.

But he clipped it anyway.  In the past, he slung the point instead of using a cam, but after watching the sling lift off the point in the middle of the crux, I suggested using a cam instead.  (Don't think I mentioned a particular size.  Oops.)

I thing slinging the point is the way to go---that's what I used to do bitd. But I always anchored the sling to a piece placed further back so the sling couldn't lift off.
