Hey guy's, I've got a question on tree anchor's.
On this video that I watched this guy used a bowline with a stopper knot back up, and a friction Wrap, with a stopper knot.  (Link to video here. youtu.be/DF1gmzkt0Mg )
Vs. In this one he uses a bowline and a double bowline back up. ( Link here.  youtu.be/2TeqyTaTN98 )
So which is better? Thank you guy's for your advice.  God Bless You, and Your Family, and Friend's, and Your Climbing!!!

Try both and pick one you like. Both are safe and fine.

I've tried out the bowline/wrap combo and it's easy enough to make but I will try both when I go to Yosemite next month.
