Lots of gear, no clue

Single strand webbing, non-locking carabiner, this is the main anchor.

A gear anchor is on the red carabiner, completely cross loading the blue carabiner. A second gear anchor is on the yellow carabiner, gate down against the rock, cross loading the carabiner in the center, which has a pulley clipped in on its minor axis. The climbing rope goes through the pulley, dragging over a rock edge.


  1. That is an absolutely extraordinary cluster. Did you say something to the group? What was their response?

  2. Since being the witness to the Carderock murder ( I find it very hard to confront people. I'm trying to learn to offer positive suggestions, but it has had mixed results, so it is still a work in progress.

  3. Shiny new gear and no clue what to do with it!!! I hope these people stick to toproping or seek further instruction.
