Anchors are easy to build ... good anchors are apparently harder.

Saw a guy kicking this this the other day as if trying to figure out if he wanted to use it in his anchor. I gave him the hint that I thought it super sketchy. Pretty sure he moved on. Jul 8, 2015

Saying "guided group" does not in any way infer that the leader was a professional guide. Hence, "in some form or another." And ya that would be pretty lame. Jan 6, 2012

It was not a guided group, but 3-4 athletic- and confident-looking 20-something guys.

Being part of an organization, or not being part of an organization, has no bearing on competence, in my 35 years of experience. (Neither does age!) This year there has been a *very* competent (and very friendly) Boy Scout group that has show up at the East Bluff several times. And they play well with others (i.e. share ropes). Oct 24, 2011
