[Hide Comment] Interesting that Diab says the anchor is not original. I always thought it was in a bad place anyway, swing wise, for either leading or following. With the newish anchor above Screamweaver (at the tree) being the best option, maybe the removal of this one should be considered. Jan 28, 2014
