Hi all,

If anyone has any pics of their anchors used for Solo Aiding I'd love to see em. I realize that Solo Aid Anchors will look very similar to other anchors but lets see what you got!

Cheers (_)?

this is one of my anchors.

note the haulbag is docked on a lower bolt. This was actually the last lead bolt of the pitch. It was a nice spot for the pig because it kept it out of the way of the ledge. also not the blue sling atached from the pig to the tie in powerpoint. This is to act as a counter weight "bealyer."

make sense? if not keep studying!

here is another...not really an anchor shot, but kind of a cool perspective anyway. if you are considering soloing anything big then you should be feeling the pucker about now:

Nice shot, lambone... I believe those bolts were the photographer's anchors, though they could have been used during the huber bro's rap in to work the route.

Can't answer for lambone, but personally I usually hang my ledge off a single bolt, then clip a b/u to another bolt. IF i were worried about an anchor failure in the middle of the night I might hang the ledge from a SEReNE-style powerpoint, but who's going to install anchors like that in this day and age?
