Actually the rope never snapped. The sheath wore through, and then over the next ten jumps or so the degloved stretch grew longer and longer, until it reached the Italian hitch, which we were then unable to release under load. At that point the coup de grace was administered.

c.f. the duct tape and dental floss, which both gave up at the first jump.
