General PSA, only option currently is the 5.8 variation finish to the bolted anchor. Couple pics here:

That variation is scary! I remember making a move up and right and being wigged out so I went further into the jungle.

Seems like it's time for the local community to come together and agree on a plan to setup bolted rap anchors that make sense and will eliminate these tree anchors.  I'm all for preserving history, but there are way too many climbers now to continue using trees for anchors...
