Anchor situation on top 9/14/14- the anchor is bomber, but someone connected the chains with a single, substandard quicklink, giving a perfectly good 2-point bolt anchor a single point of failure. Unfortunately whoever did this really cranked on the quicklink and it's going to take a wrench to pull it off. Bring one up if you read this, or I will next time.

I think Trevor took care of the quick link, as he went to get some pliers to remove it today

Anchor is fixed, back to what it should have been, two good bolts with two good chains. I have no idea what the person who did this was thinking. They converted what was a safe, redundant anchor into just the opposite by connecting the ends of the chains with a single link. This "master point" was not redundant, was a quicklink rated to 500kg, about 1/2 the strength of the chains and other links previously in the system, and furthermore it was attached in a way that essentially cross-loaded the single link, further stressing it and reducing overall strength. While I'm all for community service in situations that need it, or in instances where it is actually an improvement on the status quo, this was neither! If you do not have the experience to understand why this was wrong on so many levels, DO NOT TAMPER WITH ANCHOR HARDWARE!
