He's posted a lot on FB about the work he and Joshua Burr have done with testing loading at anchor points and optimal methods for anchoring support lines etc. Basic story as you probably know loading up a "horizontal" line puts significant force multiplication on the anchor points.

Strong trees and strong lines will hold puny humans (the short version).

Joshua Burr has a neat line attachment method where he wraps the line multiple times before locking it off. The load is distributed into the coils/trunk/limb friction, no weak point created by a sharp bend in the rope.
