Topic - Lowering off pair of bolts without chains

humptydumpty - on 09 Dec 2013
If lowering off a pair of bolts, each with a ring in, but no chain joining them, is it better to thread rope through both rings or just through one when abseiling? My initial thought was to thread both, but then... doesn't that create weird inward forces instead of downward ones on the bolts? Maybe this isn't really an issue for abseiling, but if using the bolts for a climbing anchor they should be tied into separately (V-shape instead of american death triangle)?
