and here, I thought this thread was going to be about how crappy I am at sport climbing.
Sucks that people are randomly adding anchors to shit, especially poorly placed anchors like it sounds like the bolt through the chains are.
Personally, (having absolutely no experience that would give me any real say in the matter) it seems to me that if there's already excellent natural anchor spots, which it sounds like there are, then it would be silly to place bolted anchors. Learning to build anchors is part of the game. It would be like putting bolted anchors at the top of every pitch of school room.
But again, I have no idea what I'm talking about.
