Stuff is piling up on the bulletin board. The shoes have been there for three weeks.
The AMGA came up with a "High re-direct" anchor to make rappel anchors comfortable despite pretty much defying the laws of physics. They are happy to rip trees out of the ground with the leverage of the tree. Now we see the "High just direct",no attempt at mitigation, just pure leverage on the tree.
With apologies to Monty Python, the yellow paint is an NPS mark indicating the tree is dead and selected for cutting. Note the bowline with no stopper knot. That rope is about to slip off the ledge. When the climber got up there, he opted to go over the top rather than lower.
