How difficult is it to set your draws opposed at the top?

i dont oppose them cause i think this is safer, sorry for the differing opinion... ive had opposed non lockers clip to each other and rub on the rock opening the gates... if they were lockers id oppose them... i see this as the same thing as quick clips not being opposed...

Heh. I always keep locker gates aligned when doubling them up (too complicated to explain why, but I'll show you the reason sometime). My wife and I could never agree on which way was better, so we compromised. One draw gets a locker, the other gets a wiregate, and the gates are opposed. :)

I think no matter which way you set your gates, the anchors here are a very welcome sight after the high crux sequence!

I like this angle on the route: don't see this perspective often.
