Anchors were placed basicly to make it simple and safe, but also worried about the tree. Ancors are placed on top of the right hand wall. Two anchors with carabiner in the same place where the tree rigged anchors would end up, so all now needed to do is clip the rope in.
That sounds good - but can someone tell me why rockclimbing should be "simple and safe"? Watching TV on the couch and eating chips is 'simple and safe' (besides the obvious heart disease risk) . Aren't climbing walls designed for those mentally unable/unwilling to deal with the problems that real rock climbing creates?
And no worries...Still need to nail those layback moves to get the route done. After all, at jaanankallio each route ends when you stand on top of it.
Cool - the layback is what makes it one of the best routes of its grade in the country.
