    I thought this was well done. With this setup being on such an angle, if the black belay line or control line were to fail, there is no back up to stop the load from zipping to the bottom uncontrollably. A simple fix would be to add an ASAP from the rock star to one of the high-lines. This would arrest a rapid decent. In this system, the basket hitch holding the rigging plate is not redundant. A second basket hitch clipped to the plate would remedy that single point making the two high-lines independently anchored. Then this system would pass the critical point test.
