My bad then. That is the draw back of the internet. Hard to tell if someone is joking, serious, sarcastic, etc. Jul 3, 2012

I think you guys are missing that ericcr was joking, poking fun at Denis. Jul 2, 2012
I am all for safety and pointing out serious issues, but people are also way over critical and get all worked up over some things that while not 100% picture perfect are fine.

In the case here people are calling out ancient biners which are two years old at most. The condition of a sling as really sketchy when you are looking at a snap shot of someone on TR, not on lead, and you don't know the condition of the piece on lead. Having said all that I still think that that the sling would catch a lead fall just fine. If you want to criticize some anchors look at the snap shots that a guide put up the other day from Peterskill. I didn't think that you could screw up a TR anchor off of bomber bolts, but I was wrong. Jun 29, 2012
