During the recent Ar'cteryx Big Mountain Weekend we had a masterclass from Mountain Guide Adrian Nelhams on anchor building. On todays show we look at the specifics of building an anchor and how to equalise it using the rope. More information on Adrian's guiding here. Amazing deals on Trad gear here. Information on the Ar'cteryx Lakeland Revival here.

Got a question too, why do you prefer to use you're belay plate like this, instead of placing it in the anchor, and use its auto block capability?

In Australia we prefer to have at least one figure of 8 knot in the system, and a piece of pro for an upward pull. I realise the video had to simplify, just concerned with equalising, but a leader falling from above this setup could lift the belayer and compromise the 2 stopper placements. What is your opinion?
