Descender Rack (break bar) limitations 4 bars for one person and 6 bars for two people
Figure 8 plate limitations Limit use for one person loads and minimum breaking strength well over 6,000 lbf
What is the NFPA classification for "Ascending Devices"? Loads up to 300 lbs
What is the NFPA classification for "Grab Devices"? Loads over 300 to 600 lbs
What is a soft rope grab? A rope on rope safety aka Prusik Hitch

Bombproof definition Anchor points that are so strong, that if they were to fail, it would be due to a catastrophic event, examples are tsunami or hurricane
What are the two multiple-point anchor system classifications? Load sharing anchor systems or load distributing (load equalizing) anchor systems
Load sharing anchor system example Environmental structures, examples are are trees
Load distributing (or load-equalizing) anchor systems example Urbanized or industrial structures

What is the general rigging precaution when inspecting ropes? When in doubt, throw it out
Does strength of the anchor point increase, decrease or stay the same with an increase in the amount of pulls? The strength increase due to only losing strength once with the ring bend
