Can I ask a stupid question? I've only come across anchors like this once, and while the final anchor was solid, the process was nothing short of comical. Complete with rapping off trees and ropes and anchors everywhere. And then there was cleaning the thing... I must of walked up and down more times than I climbed it.
So what's the 'standard' procedure for a toprope
anchor that is over an edge? Is there one?
