I see nothing sketch about those anchors. They do need a quicklink on the bottom so that the rope doesn't get crazy twisted, but other than that what's the problem?

Maybe "sketch" but why "super sketch"? They don't. Look horrible.

I don't think yall get it those are mini-links, not full size.
1. Links spin under the bolt
2. After an anchor is built, the rope angles at 90 degrees over the top out to the last draw/bolt. Stress of the metal links on each other looks like I'll leave this climb to whoever else is gallant enough to build an anchor on it

Anyway, rub some JTree salve on yer beanie and send it bra

those look like pretty bomb anchors to me!

Better if there was a 4th link on each side to achieve the proper orientation to facilitate pulling the rope easily, but that anchor doesn't appear "sketchy." Even better is the anchor was camouflaged.
