Beware the “Bail Trail”
Be wary of bail anchors left by previous parties. Even though we know better—say the guidebook clearly shows bolted anchors—we’ve still followed the tat wrapped around a tree or poorly equalized nuts in a seam. Clearly parties have descended this way, which has misled us to use these anchors, and soon we're in sketchville. Resist this “quick out.” Instead take the time to find the correct anchors.
