Thank you for the suggestions. I'll follow all the suggestions about TR in the gym, but what I'm after is the use of the knots, double figure eight on-a-bight and the bowline on-a-bight applied to trad climbing. Would those knots be appropriate for setting up an anchor say to lead solo an easy trad route or a situation where you only have minimum gear and your rope or say a TR anchor system. Are those two knots the right ones to use, ie. are they strong enough, do they slip, etc. I looked thru Climbing Anchors (JL) and didn't find anything on these two knots. Thanx...

Ahhhh, so that's the question? Advanced Rock Climbing ( JL ) covers both the Bowline on a Bight ( Atomic Belay ) and Double FIgure Eight ( although I'm not sure it calls it that). Both are bomber, but adjusting them takes practice.
