An equalizing anchor

Average Rating = 0.00/5 An equalizing anchor

This anchor equalizes the load to three pieces. Other than the descending rings (which should not be the rolled aluminum type) it uses ordinary gear: a cordelette and a two-foot sling.

An orientable non-equalizing anchor

Average Rating = 0.00/5 An orientable non-equalizing anchor

This anchor has the ability to change the orientation of its power point, but it does not equalize the load to the anchor points. The strand tensions and anchor loads are given in terms of the anchor point load F

Load distribution for an anchor

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Load distribution for an anchor

This proposed equalizing anchor actually loads the anchors in the ratio 1:2:1. The tension in each arm is indicated by T. The tensions are all the same because of the indicated pulley actions. The anchor loads are written at the anchors.

Opposition set-up 5-6

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Opposition set-up 5-6

The locking girth hitch has been proposed as an effective method for one-handed set-up of opposed pieces. I have found it unreliable, especially when using the new "dental floss" slings. These picture depict the third two steps in a method I think is more suitable.

Choss Hike Corrected

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Choss Hike Corrected

Three pictures showing a mother and child free soloing...something. In each case, the picture has been rotated to so that an edge is parallel to some trees. The trees used are no longer visible in two of the pictures because of the cropping imposed by the rotation. The lowest picture is the top one, the next highest is lower left, and the highest is lower right

Six-carabiner anchor

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Six-carabiner anchor

The six carabiner anchor is gear intensive, but has the advantage of being easily constructed when the pieces are out of reach of the belayer at his or her stance. In such situations, cordalettes can be especially cumbersone to employ, requiring extension slings on the gear and so using up about the same number of biners.
