Ya it was a spiky little shite. Figured that was my good deed for the day. I may end up back on FOF before the season is out, it is sunny. Ill take a look at that cam but what I'd really like to clean out is the cable anchor above pitch 2. Anyone know what size wrench I'll need? I thought it looked like a 1/2 inch head. Maybe 7/16". Sorry about the thread drift. Oh wait I can bring it back on topic... Have at it Mike!

"Walk" is what people did before they became all jaded with rap anchors.

I would really like to know who is installing these cable anchors.

Yes, indeed. I was just thinking of continuing this tirade in the anchors thread...

FWIW the cable on FOF has been there AWHILE. The tree has grown out to the point that it is growing around the cable. At places the cable is at least a quarter inch imbedded in the bark of the tree. The two steel quick links are compressed between the tree and the cable. Its a solid tree no doubt, and worthwhile as a rap anchor...

Rob- "walk" is what you do when you visit a crag that has a certain "wilderness feel" to it, not NYC's country club the gunks in the year 2000...

This will probably kill the tree. At the very least it will be highly stressed.
