Rock climbing anchors 101

Is your anchor ERNEST?

Equalized, Redundant, No-Extension, Strong, Timely

This setup includes 3 points of protection; one natural (left red nylon sling wrapped around a rock) and two cams. All three points are equalized, brought to the center (towards the direction of the pull) and tied with an overhand knot – making this a bomber setup. The rock quality and formation was also inspected to ensure it can support a big fall without moving. 

Happy Climbing!
