Perhaps multi day ascents sac hauling portaledges and extreme dehydration (eek) are not your bag but that doesn't mean you should turn your back on the oval biner design: far from it. At some point all of us will need to use a pulley system most likely in a rescue situation. Oval biners are important because they allow pulleys to sit in a correctly loaded and equalized position. The symmetrical shape also stops them shifting under load and potentially dislodging a marginal gear placement. The locking gate adds a final element of security to the system.
