Ah, that makes things a little more clearer. I guess one of the things that really bothers me is that I am seeing more and more people at the crags dragging all this crap along with them. One guy in particular had one of those Metolius personal anchoring systems. I asked nicely about it, then I inquired why he didn't just the rope. He didn't know how. I showed him the process and also showed him and his partner how to tie in with a double 8. They were nice guys and offered me a rope on their route.
It just seems people these days are relying gear and toys rather than knowledge.
P.S. Note to self to send a PM to acorn and apologize for pissing in his cheerios.
