Your setup would be fine, its just too complicated. As anything gets more complicated the chance that you do something wrong increases.

My go to top rope anchor is a double length sling. The setup looks like the one on the left. I typically use lockers in the bolts as well as the power point, but non lockers are okay.


If you're using gear to build an anchor instead of bolts you will want three pieces, or if the bolts are questionable use them and back them up with a piece of gear. In which case you could build the anchor the same way just using a longer sling or cordellette.

Still your best bet is to buy a book. Both of these are done well.
