comment Avoiding building a belay anchor too low down
@ShemSeger "Would you not shock load the anchors if any piece of protection failed, ever?" You quoted SRENE, If the piece of protection was S-Redundant-E-No-Extension, then the anchor would not be shock loaded.

comment Avoiding building a belay anchor too low down
@ShemSeger the question is specifically about setting up an anchor. Not about bolting, or body belaying, or climbing with bolt protection. Nor was it about the basic principles of setting a good trad anchor. that question has been asked and answered here

@Dakatine thanks for the link. I've read something by andy kirkpatrick stating the use of a plastic bag around a socked foot. I expect this approach would be more beneficial than any application of chemicals.
