[Hide Comment] TR can be set with 2 static lines to junipers, but anchors should be set ~5 ft below the rim, over a lip, to cut down on rope drag. The crux finger crack can also be climbed from a TR on the Headjam anchors, but youÂ’re off the rope line and its hard to get back on if you pop off. Mar 31, 2010
