Yeah, that's the rub. my partner's got a bolt gun from work, but what would be the best... two standard bolt hangers with lengths of chain, or those same bolt hangers with a sling/rap ring attached?Sunny-D wrote:I have thought about this for years. that little tree does need some help. It would be very easy to put in an anchor and save the tree also making the route easier to get off of and safer. I would be for it, Just make sure the right gear is used.

Three feet to the right, about five feet back from the lip of the cliff. There is a large flat surface (about 4'x6') in the limestone which would accommodate a set of chains quite nicely, as it appears quite stable.Sunny-D wrote:I would have to say chain...if done right it will last the longest and is strong and secure. I also have access to a drill and all the other stuff for the anchor. Are you thinking about putting the rap anchor behind the tree about 2-3 feet right or left? This will definitely save the tree up there.
