First time in recorded history.

They DIDN'T tie off the tree 20 feet up in the air.

Lots of brand new rope.

The top carabiner is critical to the anchor, the bottom one is pointless.


  1. Ha! John, that first pic is my anchor. As I'm sure you know, this particular tree is a bit awkward to set up low on, given the extremely low angle between the rope and tree. My recommendation to others for this situation is to use a frictionless wrap to keep the anchor in place. While you can't see it from your pic, my anchor was not truly frictionless, and it did slip a bit over a handful of falls...not good for the tree or rope, and I would do it differently next time.
