1st pitch SS anchors.  ~25m rap to ground.  Could use some sealant to prevent water entry / freeze.  Also, if anyone's so kind, please upgrade to rap ring hangers if I don't get to it soon enough.  Please don't nab biners/rap rings.  Keep it nice and easy for all to use.

Towards assurances the rap rings do not disappear, replaced the biners with Petzl Go 7mm Steel Screw Link Maillons. Unfortunately, did not have chains with us. Sep 25, 2016

Well, when rapping the loads shouldn't get high enough to cause the issues described above. I am sure when you lead to this anchor a sliding X or quickdraws are deployed to lower the angle of intersection. Jan 8, 2014

Jason,
Because of the very concern you site, we didn't apply any sealant to any of the bolts we installed.

Craig,
I don't disagree with you. Had I had chain I would have supplied, but for whatever reason we only had this setup available with us that day. Feel free to replace biners & rings with chain.

cheers,
