Seems like mostly personal preference really.


Static cord, static rope, webbing and even slings are acceptable anchoring means. On lead, you can even build the anchor out of your dynamic rope! Learn them all and have them in your "tool-box" of climbing knowledge and you can practice them all when you build your anchors. There are often trade offs with the varying means. If the anchor is built with a stable master point by good extension angles, the quartzite edges at Devils Lake become a non-issue.

just my 2-cents

Let me get this straight. People are willing to carry up to 90' of static cord? I bring 40' of 1" webbing and that is more than enough. Why would you ever carry 90' of cord up.


I carry 80' of big honking 7/16" (11mm) static cord to set up TRs. Trees or anchor points are often far from the cliff edge where I climb. I don't mind the little extra weight in my pack for cragging.
