Think you might find yourself needing to craft a three piece gear anchor with only a few carabiners and a double length / 120 cm sling? (OMG, I don’t have my 20 foot cordelette, how will I do this?!)
This is a Crafty Rope Trick (CRT) you’ll want to remember - the V clove anchor.
Here’s a photo of the finished product: 3 closely placed pieces of pro, one 4 foot runner, and voila, a 3 piece equalized anchor, with no cordelette.
Note that the sewn part of the sling is arranged in the “V” bit of slack between the center and left carabiners.
I'll be honest; I ‘d never heard of this technique before watching this video. Now I think it's pretty terrific. Will you use it very often? Maybe not. But for more advanced climbers, it’s a fine one to add to the toolbox.
