A collection of dubious top rope climbing anchors.

Good news, bad news.
The good news, this anchor was never even loaded, the knot didn't tighten. The bad news, run way up that little tree, it would have levered the tree severely.
The climbing rope was rigged for rope soloing. It is close to a tensionless anchor, so I guess the half hitches don't matter much. The guy climbing in work boots was using a single Jumar-type ascender, which would be lucky to not sever the rope if he fell. Must be the heat.
