Jesus, that thing's huge! I appreciate being sure your anchors are good, but remember the more time you take, the more time you get less done.

Meaning, if you move onto multi pitch routes, taking half an hour to rig an anchor is going to slow you way down. Efficiency is a key factor. This applies to both top rope anchors as well as any other anchor.

At this point, if you are unsure, better to over build. It takes time to learn how to build good anchors quickly and have confidence in them.

I'd certainly rather see that then some of the crap I've encountered over the years.
