Anchor training, be afraid, be very afraid.

Tied to a dead tree. If you don't know it is dead, the bark gives it away. It is possible that the students tied the next few anchors and the instructors (never seen them before) will critique. The students looked like this year's crop of camp counselors.

Would you really use the small tree when you had rope to go to the big one?

This anchor isn't part of the system until the primary fails.

Lots of big blocks instead of that skinny tree.

Webbing and a single carabiner when they had enough rope. The class was climbing on this.

Carabiners barely over the edge, the anchor at right is poised to fall off the corner.
