Since all of the videos Iíve seen show tying in to the waist strap loop and the leg strap loop together (not the belay loop).

It would seem that the leg strap would bottom out first in from the tie in loop then then waist loop. This might promote a backwards tilt when you come to the end on the dynamic top rope.

Would you instinctively reach out and try to grab the top rope or not? Thanks.
