Top rope through anchors (solutions) 3-May-2011 At 11:09:28 AM TonyB
A point that seems to be missed is that top roping through lower offs is a very slow process, when one has to find a way to rap down to the anchors to set up, then after finishing the route pack up everything and walk all the way back up to the top to set up the next route. The number of routes climbed this way would be small. Anyone doing a lot of top roping will find it much quicker to set up their own anchors and simply move them along for the next climb.

I think most wear on lower offs probably comes from lead climbers who are lowered down rather than be rapping down after finishing a route.
