Geoffrey & losbill.....those three angles look pretty solid, especially in the nice horizontal. Just removing the large screwlink at the bottom (a few quick turns of the wrench) would make it possible to thread the rope through the three smaller screwlinks and make a much better situation to rappel from and the three pins would remain equalized. No need to call it dubious or unsafe BS and/or make disparaging comments about TRers. It really doesn't look much different from the anchor at the top of P1 of "Horseman," except for the tatty slings.

Losbill's comment may have been a bit sarcastic. For some interesting reading on why he may feel that way, grab a PBR and read up here.

From that thread, these three angles replaced this:

NOW somebody has to clean off all that extra 'backup' gear on that anchor. How about bringing along a giveaway 'biner and put it through a chain and then the rope through the original link and your biner? Or make an anchor you dont' mind leaving in place. Have an extra pin or angle to give up?

The dubious 3-pin anchor at the top. Having to feed the rope through just a single quicklink makes the walkoff or other rappel options look pretty good.
