Be­ware the “Bail Trail”

Climbing - - CLINICS GUIDE'S TIP -

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.
