cfrac,

I have no idea what that anchor is for. I've seen people bail off Bonnie's with it...

Yeah it's weird.

Was up on Son of Easy-o and someone put new slings, added a new angle (the other 2 angles are about to crumble apart) and a friend. Much better than what was there before, Thanks mysterious healer of the anchor!

On the anchor 20ft from the top? Wish we had a mysterious chopper instead.

Yes, the anchor 20 feet from the top. I like this anchor because the top-out is mini rubble gully.

True that. I suspect that this is why that otherwise pointless anchor was installed. Perhaps the anchor fairy would consider removing the anchor and adding a small broom to keep the top nice and clean.

Does the anchor fairy wear a french maid's outfit and look like Katie Brown?

yes, but I find the beard something of a turn-off.

Someone tried chopping that before. Word has it that this would take some kind of chisel...Maybe Katie Brown wasn't carrying one.

The more people that belay up in the rubble gully, the sooner somoene sitting at the base is going to get blasted with a golfball sized rock and sent to the hospital. I think the safety issues outweigh the negatives with that anchor. Just my opinion.
