RopeMastahs!

Yesterday I fixed a line. The first anchor was the rope tied off to sling on a tree; the second anchor was a cam clipped into the locker on the tree sling; the third anchor was a piece clipped to a butterfly in the rope running from the tree.

Question: Any problem with the the butterfly as anchor #3?

Sounds to me like the butterfly was an appropriate knot to use.

butterfly sounds like a great choice in this anchor.
