If you are going to carry a PAS, I like the idea of an anchor system that can be very quickly converted to some other use. I tried the Purcell for a while, but I settled on a simpler system:

I carry the cordelette so that I have some material to use if I get in a jam and for a rappel cow's tail, but I often exclusively use the rope at each multi-pitch anchor when swapping leads. Bunny-ear 8 or triple loop 8.
