No, it's just one of those stories that has been passed around NE climbers for awhile now. I honestly don't know if it actually happened, but I like to believe that it did. Maybe someone else can add more info.

Just make sure you pass the chain through tubular webbing to avoid permanent damage to the vehicle. ;-)

I am not sure that anchor has anything to do with sport climbing. It was established by amateur highliners for a highline anchor. I say amateur because no one in their right mind would ever need a 16-bolt anchor. Although, my understanding is that it is supposed to be two 8-bolt anchors for two separate but close highlines. Either way, that is too many bolts in such a concentrated area.

Twenty KN, I know what it's for. I was just joking around. It was for a 380 highline in Smith Rock tuff. Pretty sure a bunch of impoverished balance hippies would not waste bolts. I just thought it looked bad was all. Ryan Palo
