I was watching Josh Bernstein "Digging for the Truth" tonight and he
did something that just didn't look right. He was repelling into an
underground cistern. The way he anchored the rope was strange, but
seemed to work. And I know nothing about repelling.
He had 5 metal rods that resembled eyebolts. He pounded them into the
ground 12"- 18" apart in the shape of a pentagon. He then threaded his
rope through each eye and tied the rope together and descended on the
remainder. He then stated that this was the proper way to set up the
anchor. Why would forming a hexagon/circle as an anchor be better than a
linear or radial configuration?
