More slackline anchors 8-Apr-2013 At 1:58:40 PM sliamese
im keen to catch up with these guys when im there shortly to help set it up and play on it! i think have dedicated bolts, easier safer and just plain better! It seems a weak argument that climbers can have the thousands of bolts at araps, but highliners cant have a few dozen? Climbers can justify the chains on ali's but not these ones?!

My only suggestion would be have independant anchors, probably at least M16 stainless glu-in threads to take an eye-nut, as smaller bolts will have their Working Load Limits exceeded i reckon.

Araps stone must be about 2.4 tonne/m3, so that block would weigh more than enough. But agree the sideways loads a bit scary!

As for the rope swing, very easy to tie back the middle point in both directions so it cant leave the centre. Most of this stuff is pretty basic rigging really.
