In the winds, found this rapping off of Wolf's Head. They probably had a single 60m - we had doubles and made it down to a far superior rap station. Actually doesn't look too bad, if I had to I'd use it
Wait, I'm confused. If it didn't look too bad, how does it fit into the world's worst anchors thread?

^-- I think your system is kinda sketch, having the tagline go through your webbing is a noobish thing, just tie a 8 on a bight and put it on the quicklink and you will be fine.

Found this in a thread a few months ago.
I love that there are two biners on that spaghetti can. But the main issue with the anchor is that the can is not redundant. They must have had a second can that they could have thrown in there as a backup. Cheapskates.
Gotta be careful, you know.

This is a fun thread! I think this site deserves a place here
There are some real jive-ass anchors in this thread.

Posted this somewhere else before but was it was so bad it deserves to be in this thread.
Was climbing Moby Grape on Cannon some twenty years ago with a partner when we were joined at a belay ledge by the leader of a more "experienced" party of three. He puts in one Loweball and belays his partners up. We were horrified but not as much as they were. The argument that ensued was fun to watch. We gladly let them climb thru. Sorry no pics but you really should not need one.

Unfortunately, the 'fixed' anchor has a major flaw in it's design. It is bad practice to 'hitch' or fix the rappel ring in a single position, especially if it is an aluminum ring as is the case here. If you fix the position of the rappel ring it will wear much faster than if you leave it loose on the cord or webbing. The correct way to 'fix' the anchor is to just pass the cord through the ring.
Maybe anyone who can't figure out how to rotate the ring around a bit should let someone else set up the rappel?
