Different forces on top and bottom of same climbing rope? Human testing on a Rope Swing

Does the climbing rope you fall on see a different force at the top than the bottom of it and why? We do some human testing on this In Line Rope Swing at Elephant Rock.

As long as your big highline is high enough, you can rope swing off any of them now. You don’t need a rock off to the side for an exit. In line rope swinging opens up all sorts of new spots to fly through the air.

Music used was Hero In Peril by Audionautix and Iron Bacon by Kevin MacLeod

Breaking Gear Fear

Edutainment has been a great way to help people understand their gear, and know the true limitations of it.  Watching HOW gear fails is more important than the force itself, as almost all gear is super good enough.  It's more important to share information on how to stay safe than it is to have a paywall.  We hope our stoke is contagious.
