Why wouldn't you use a pulley?

Redundant? Not so much.

The carabiners aren't reversed or opposed. You should have seen the belayer being jerked around trying to hold on using the pulley.

Always something new

Two inch slack lines as anchors. Who knew they made two inch slack lines?

Shiny new rope, no clue

Anchoring off a tree 20 feet ip in the air, the knot pictured is the only one in the system. The climbing rope carabiners were free sliding over the anchor rope.

Here's the second tree, also a not quite tensionless anchor.

Starting the new year off wrong.

Deadly Bowline Dude was one of the few out despite the 50 degree sunny day.

Anchors 3 feet up the tree.

Same guy, he had random strangers climbing on the rig. Are you climbing with Deadly  Bowline Dude?

The worst shall be last

Skinny tree, runner, carabiner, lots of dubious choices.

Three cams, though the rock tends to shear, and gear fails.

He used a runner and carabiner, though his other anchor shows he can tie off anchors.

Another runner, 3 feet up the tree.

Three cams stuck behind a small rock, note the crack to the right, and the "interesting" purple runner. The climbing rope is dragging over rock edges.

The biggest cam isn't making a lot of contact.
