Well I didn't mean for it to sound like I'm "unexperienced" I've climbed all over the world and at least a hundred times outside. I have top belayed winter mountaineering but since the anchor system is set up VERY differently in snow I was wondering where the master point should be in relation to a cliff edge, as well as what belay devices make it safer and or easier. The biggest question I have is if a climber were to sustain injuries far below the master point, above water, how could they be rescued?

I've had my share of nasty injuries and seen far worse happen to others, I fully understand the danger of climbing and would never put someone in an unsafe situation. Nor would I put my trust in someone else to belay if they were not ready. Everybody has to do this for the first time once. Making it as safe as possible is the obvious goal of all climbers.

That being said, does anybody have any advice other than don't do it.

Sorry I don't meat to sound hostile, just looking for answers/advice/input rather than judgement or criticism.
