Yikes. Bad news indeed.

If this is true, and it was indeed a client/guide outing, then the guide is 100% at fault. Period. The client's safety and well being is your first and primary responsibility bar none.

I know nothing of the guide or the service they work for, but a knot failure is absolutely unacceptable and there is no good reason or excuse for it.

Unless I'm missing something, the knot was most likely a figure 8 follow through or re-traced figure 8. The double figure 8, like the double bowline is a different knot.

I do not believe, nor do I teach the concept of a "backup" knot. Myself and a number of seasoned guides all consider that to be a finishing knot.

Sorry to hear the bad news.
