Hi Asher, If possible you should try to attach yourself to anchors using the rope or some form of rope anchor like this: http://www.petzl.com/en/Sport/Lanyards/CONNECT-ADJUST?l=GB#.VbeR_PlViko If that's not possible then the second best option would be to use a daisy chain. And finally if you have to use a sling then try to use a nylon sling rather than dyneema one as they cope better with being shock loaded. Hope that helps, Dave
