Hey I was wondering if it is safe to use an EDK (backed up with a second EDK) in a cordelette anchor toprope? I know that I can use a double fishermans but it tends to be a real pain to untie if weighted. Thanks.

I don't know whether it's safe or not, but I know it's foolish. The double fisherman's knot tightens under tension, which is exactly the behavior you want in a cordelette knot. And, no, it is not significantly more difficult to untie after it has been weighted.

Stick with time-tested methods. Resist the temptation to gumby innovate.
