Saw this toprope setup at Peterskill a few weeks ago. Single girth hitched sling around an endangered pine tree, redirected(?) around a tiny branch, running over sharp rock, to a single biner for top roping. The leader missed every single point of a SERENE anchor. People die this way, and have died in similar set ups at the Gunks in recent years...
