Anyone have good advice on building anchors with twin ropes? I've had experience building 2- and 3- point clove hitch anchors and master points with a single rope, but having recently purchased a set of Sterling Photon 7.8s, I'm curious if there's a huge difference Andrew Herring

I typically tie one rope into each anchor, if there is a third anchor it might be equalized or I might daisy chain into it. Allen Sanderson

They have it right, one piece, one rope with clove hitch. Another piece other rope, clove hitch. If I feel 3rd necessary I clip in a sling and equalize all three. 3 min tops. I belay from my harness and redirect off off of the best 1 or 2 depending on position. Whole thing is done before average guy can get his cordelette untangled.

The exception is when climbing with 3. Cord with master point makes getting everyone anchored in and ready for next pitch.

Excellent rope choice by the way!
