I've lost track of it in this thread, but if the replacement anchor is meant for rappelling, I'd think a second ring or link on each quick link would be needed. As is, they lay flat against the cliff so I'm not sure you could thread more than one and still pull your rope after (or it would end up pretty kinked).

When I climbed it on Tues. the anchor had a non-locking biner besides the single chain link. Looks like the biner is gone.

wow that mank was ugly! but the old mismatched turqoise and red sling combination is a winner too...

so somebody removed the old crap, put in nice pins with quick links and then built that imperfectly equalized sling anchor? the craftmanship seems at different levels, doesnt it?

i think we should have a weekly photo of the most famous needless anchor in the gunks to keep us entertained smile

Just got back from Eldo, Lumpey and RMNP (Spearhead). I can see why people move to CO to climb, wow! I forgot what it was like to walk off a great climb. Although it was good to practice my 5th class downclimbing, we need to get out there and install more rap anchors!

"so somebody removed the old crap, put in nice pins with quick links and then built that imperfectly equalized sling anchor? the craftmanship seems at different levels, doesnt it?"

The person who put in the nice new hardware put a neat and tidy equalized cord and rings on it. Some low-life swiped that cord and rings, so a 3rd party put new slings on it as best they could. Probably just what they had in hand at the time.

The fact that I know the history of this anchor says I spend too much time reading Gunks.com. :^/
