Fixed anchors come in all flavors. Some of the most common are bolts, pins, slings and chains. Over the years climbers have come up with both good and bad ideas for anchors. Some last for decades while others are unsafe from the day they are placed or deteriorate beyond any margin of safety in just a few years. In this section I am going to help educate climbers about proper placement and removal of permanent anchors.
This is the start of much work for this section. Always remember to use more than one source of info. Something I publish may be wrong so please verify all of my information before proceeding with anchor work. Improperly placed anchors can result in injury or death of yourself or subsequent parties. Use this Info at your own risk and anyone who proceeds past this page does so with the understanding that we accept no responsibility for the use of this info.

HOW TO REMOVE A BOLT
HOW TO PLACE A BOLT
This type of anchor is easy to place, environmentally sound and removable without causing any permanent damage to anything. It saves much wear on a trees bark from continued rigging of webbing. It consists of two wraps of 5/16 inch stainless steel aircraft cable with two huge stainless rap rings. the cable is secured with two copper swages and is wrapped with an old piece of garden hose to protect the tree.
