Not to beef on you... but clipping biner to biner is a big no no. You should be using alpine slings. Any case, it is safer to pull out the bolt end biner, and clip it onto the end of the draw to make one double length. Best to go biner, nylon, biner, nylon, biner. It also saves wear on biners and ropes.

Yeah, I gave him sh* for that. Especially since he's the guy who sometime back convinced me that one should only use alpine slings on gear, never QDs. Ha ha, and yes, never biner on biner!
