This looks way more simple than what I was trying to do, I like it! Having the wrap around the trees would help make sure both lines were equally loaded by using any spare rope?
Also like the idea of wrapping both trees.
What size static cord should I be using?

Do not put rope around trees. It will eventually kill them.

There's what was a wonderful tree more than a foot in dia, at the top of a classic route near here that has been killed in this manner. The dead tree is still being used as the anchor for the route. The tree will get it's own back when it breaks from the termites that are now eating it, when a climber is on the route.
