I agree, no bolt anchor either! What would come next, a road right to the top of the......oh wait, nevermind.

Why dont't we all each chip in $300 or so? Then we could chopper the tree out, replant it in a ball with a few hundred pounds of fertilizer, have some local gurus try to restore its chakra, and then we could chopper it back to where it was?

I'm trying to decide whether to chip in the bucks or, more appealing, declare myself the local chakra restoration guru, understanding that the fee for the psychic effort involved in such a restoration project would be considerable.

+ 1 for RG's guru-ness. He's a tenured professor at a prestigious institution and climbed harder in 1969 than most do in 2012, the man know how to do things.

I think bolts at MB would attract more problems (stranded newbies? ) than they would solve. The spirit is of a remote-r cliff where self sufficiency is the game.

We need to start a Faculty club, now that I'm eligible smile.

A gear anchor isnt likely to be found by anyone, but if it were it would likely be by a climber. If youre worried about a climber taking it as booty, put a tag on it. Something like:

"This is our rap anchor for today DATE, assuming you need one use it, dont take it.

Thanks."

Look, if you really want an anchor there so much so that you want to put a bolt, why don't you save yourself some trouble and time and run a stainless or galvanized steel cable off another tree or rock back in the woods. Yea, and take a rubber hose on it too. You can inspect a cable but anyone can crazy glue a bolt to the wall. In other words, there is no disadvantage to using a cable. All you need to know is how long to make the cable, cut it, and put the hose and six clamps on it, and don't saddle a dead horse. It should take you no longer than 5 minutes to install it, less time than it took me to write this post. Hopefully no one will trip over it and fall off the cliff, if they do it is your fault.
