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

comment using anti-perspirant in extreme cold climate
@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.

comment Using a Girth Hitch in Alpine Draws
additionally the reason for the biner being open in the gear end, is to reduce the play on the protection. Reducing the probability of the pro from dislodging.
