Please tell me he clipped into the second anchor before he brought up his second.

There are actually two sets of anchors (the other is out of frame to the right). You can't see in the pic, but I'm in direct to the other set with my end of the rope (much more comfortable, and still redundant). So, I'm in two points, and the rope is running from my device through an equalized point down to my follower. The pic is a bit deceiving.

Tane....good job with the tie-in and easing Marc's concerns regarding the 2nd anchor. My concern is your belay technique with the Gri Gri...may I suggest looking at this video link on the proper belay technique as suggested by Petzl.


Please note that the brake hand DOES NOT come off the rope......EVER.
