Scrambling Skills
Using rock spikes can be a very fast belay method when scrambling. Here, Rob Johnson tests and rejects a potential anchor, and shows how to use a good spike for a direct belay using just the rope around the rock spike. This is a very fast method for scrambling, especially for easy ground. He also shows how to use a sling for a thread anchor.
