Topic - Belay question

Fredt on 13 Oct 2013
OK, one of my anchors is bombproof hex.
It's a fair way back, I.e. out of reach from where I want to stand.
I would always use one of the ropes, clove hitch to a krab on the hex sling, and back to my harness.
The only downside is if it needs adjusting, I have to keep going back to adjust the rope length until it is right.
I see many others use a long sling to bring the krab within reach, so the clove hitch can be adjusted easily on the stance, but I'm always reluctant to add extra links in the chain.

Any thoughts?
