Thanks, guys! I had a chance to review one of Grizz's videos where he attached a descender ring at the apex of the triangle. This should do the trick and perhaps act in the same way as ExPXGUY's suggestion for a sailmaker's thimble (which is a really great suggestion, in my opinion). I will experiment with it and see if it solves the problem.
