Belaying the leader directly off the anchor. 6-Aug-2012 At 10:20:25 AM SteveC
Just watched this video- This is what I saw. A belay anchor a little bit like an aid solo anchor except not equalised. Equalising it would make it longer and floppier so that's presumably why they don't equalise the anchor. Nothing wrong with parallel anchor setups, but the Vertical anchor looked 50 percent safer when I turned my computer upside down. Apart from that it looks like a reasonable solution for someone dragging up a numpty who is going to complain about getting shaken around a little bit when you take a lead fall.
One of the factors I would consider before using this is whether I (the leader) would prefer a grumpy numpty with a bruised shoulder or to suffer broken ankles myself if I took a fall.

Je pense que c'est bonne argument, Non?
