Noticed this afternoon that both anchors on Son of a Bitchy Virgin are in old shape, lots of manky webbing. Put this one on the list for things that need work. Both anchor/rappel points only need webbing.

Anchor on P1 of Triangle needs new webbing. I'll replace it next time when I'm on that route.

Nice job on Laughing Man - rap anchor is much better than it was last season...

fotovult - thanks for the update, sounds like the Laughing Man anchor has lasted almost two months so far!

In sum, the current "work list" has Triangle & Son of a Bitchy Virgin - bot of which only need webbing.

I brought webbing with me when I did Immaculate/Son of Bitchy Virgin last week-- some new-looking red webbing had already been added at both rap stations. There was also a newish looking cordalette that had been added at the GT Ledge station. But the red webbing and the cordalette at this station each only went around isolated branches of the multi-forked tree, so I added another piece of tan webbing that went around the whole base of the tree and cut away some of the old stuff.

That tree has seen better days, IMO. Some branches are dead/dying. It bears watching.

Also yesterday my partner added webbing to the tree atop The Main Line. Our new webbing is black, all the rest looked pretty old. We cut away several of the oldest pieces of webbing.

Interplanetary Agents is awful sun-bleached, though probably fairly low on the priority list.

Triangle got a newish piece of (yellow) webb a couple weeks back, no knife to take out the old stuff. Also, the anchor on top of P2 of Feast of Fools, anyone want to lug up a wrench and try and take that thing off? Its bomber, but will surely kill the tree given enough time. Actually, I'm not sure, I'm no arborist!

Anchor atop The Nose (shared with Filipina, Boldville, and Quien Sabe) is in better shape these days.
