|So climbed the Guillotine on 3/20/16. I reached the anchors and noticed that the right one has been subject to a high amount of friction in which there is a sizeable groove in it. I'd estimate that TRing or lowering off these anchors repeatedly has worn through the anchor, about half way through!. Just wanted to point this out for what I saw. Thanks and great climb|

Here's the climber leading up to the anchors on Caffeine, just prior to abusing the anchor by placing his rope directly through the shuts. Recognize him?
Another situation where a climber has disregarded the local ethic and placed his rope directly through the shuts.
Leechy . . .it's lazy idiots like the guy in this sequence of photos that wear grooves in the anchors by not placing their own gear to let their equally clueless friends TR on.

|Yes Chapman, people SHOULD NOT Top rope the anchors. In fact, people shouldn't top rope! With that being said, the anchors and all hardware at Echo is 20 years old and could use replacement all around. So Benny Chapman, instead of sitting in the "cheap seats", why don't you do some work and replace some anchors?|
