Cracklover: You posted the picture above as one of your go-to systems. I was thinking about this and have come up with a system that is very similar but does away with the extra sling/biner...

#1, #2, and #3 are clove hitches.

#4 is a Alpine butterfly, directional 8, or in your case a standard fig-8 on a bight which creates a large loop for #2 and #3 anchor points.

#5 is your same master point (butterfly).




This removes the need for the extra sling biner, each piece would (theoretically) get 33% of the load, and each piece can be adjusted easily with the clove hitches.

Have you tried this one before?
