Topic - Rate my top rope.

deepsoup - on 08 Apr 2013
Well, not my top rope exactly.

I happened across a bit of crag-swag the other day.
(Soon to be re-united with it's rightful owner via the power of UCK: http://www.ukclimbing.com/forums/t.php?t=545280 )

I guess they pulled the ropes and then forgot to re-visit the top of the crag to collect the TR anchors, d'oh! The anchors looked a bit alarming to me so I thought, just for a bit of fun (and because you do get really good, constructive advice offered here, between the outbreaks of bickering), I'd take a couple of pictures to share with the UKC massiv.

Here goes:

Out of sight in the first pic, equalised (ish) with the sling in the foreground, there's also a pretty decent thread loosely larks-footed with a 10mm dyneema sling. (There'd probably have been about 2" of slack to pull out of it before it came tight.)

So, what's the verdict? Mildly untidy, or death on a stick. ;o)

And for trolling purposes: if the belay is dodgy enough, does that make Sunset Slab HVS to top rope and/or lower off? ;o)
