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.

You're right False, if this were a belay part way up the climb then best practice would be to have a piece for an upward pull. I think the scenario in the video is belaying at the top of the route so any pull will be downwards. By the figure of 8 do you mean using a figure 8 on a bight to tie the rope from the belay to the rope loop at the harness ie replacing the screw gate at the harness with a figure 8? This saves on karabiners, but I guess is slightly more complicated as it requires another type of knot.
