    2. I thought this was a pretty great book on climbing anchors. I should preface this review by saying I don't have on-the-rock experience with the subject matter nor have I done extensive research on the subject. At the time of reading this book my background in climbing has been limited to single pitch sport climbing and bouldering.

    4. Classic book on anchors updaterI own all 3 editions. It gets better each time . The real research is crucial. We want to make choices hased on knowlege instead of gut feeling.

Add in a touch of climbing humor and you've got a great guide. I haven't read Leubben's book on the subject, but have it on order to do a comparison.

    6. I just finished this, the most recent edition of John Long's classic instruction manual, and it's great.I'm eager to experiment with the equalette concept, as an alternative to the cordelette, as well as the Quad setup for two-bolt anchors.
