Think you might find yourself needing to craft a three piece gear anchor with only a few biners 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.
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.
