Top rope through anchors (solutions)

Leave a krab or harden up and do what MrsM10iswhereitsat said.

You could make it so a rope will "just" pull through for those incapable of the options above.

Do a macrame knot, less to pull through!

Either that or there's a suggestion on Qurank to cable tie a laminated flyer to each anchor suggesting why it's not good to top rope off an anchor?

A flyers the best option yet!!

I wasnt meaning give $20 to a bolting fund, i meant spend the $10 for a pair of SS shackles at ur local hardware and replace them yourself! Its not exactly a technical procedure. I imagine if they're wearing out so quicky mild steel would be fine too!

Problem with mild steel is they rust shut, and then require a hacksaw or angle grinder to remove.

But i thought they were wearing through quickly? That or theres not really a problem in the first place. It'll take 6-12 months to reach the point that a shifter doesnt work( on tassie seacliffs, cant speak for bluies!)

Cool, sounds like your volunteering the out lay and effort to replace worn fixtures.

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.

I think by top roping through anchors people mean one person leads the route to put the rope up, then others top rope on it
