I agree that if you see something unsafe you should say something. However, I see no reason not to take a picture of someone's anchor, safe or unsafe, and to use it as an example online.


im simply making the point that the best thing to do is to talk to the person who built the anchor first

thats much more productive and who knows maybe yr wrong in yr assumptions ...

i remember years ago when some people in a course told a guide that they saw an "unsafe" TR anchor and proceeded to tell everyone around about how "unsafe" it was ... when they described it the guide said "thats safe, id climb on it" ... they felt like idiots

almost every "anchor" post ive seen has been some newbie posting up TR anchors he/she thinks unsafe ... no one i know who is experienced will post up "unsafe" anchor photos of others or scream about how "unsafe" other peoples anchors are ... unless there is a serious threat of failure ... theyll usually have a quiet word with the person first Tongue
