Bolting in the Warrumbungles Monday, 16 May 2011 At 3:20:11 PM mikllaw
That's me!
As requested by Bryden, 2 rap anchors were placed on Cornerstone rib, one in the gully below the crux pitch (2 pitches up) where there was about 10m of extremely rotted rope connecting various poor anchors left from some epic retreat. A bolt and shackle was placed on the edge of this gully. It probably won't be used as belay point.

The next anchor up has all possible anchors well back from the edge and pulling a rope down from here would be hard without leaving 3 slings to extend. A bolt was placed here also. I could have placed it a long way away so this wasn't usable as an anchor, but that seemd a bit silly, so yes, you can incorporate it in the belay.

All the higher anchors are fine for retreat as they are on smaller ledges and you'd just have to leave some gear behind.

John Croker may be able to post a shot of the pile of tatt cut off these various rap anchors. It half filled my daypack.
