    Hi all

    Could someone please tell me the local etiquette at Mountain Quarry, is lowering off ok or should I rappel down?

    It seems to be acceptable to be lowered off the anchors.

    i would say you should only rappel down. getting lowered wears out the anchors faster.

    So does toproping directly through the anchors without using slings/draws and biners. This happens a lot in the quarries, by the considerate people who don’t do the rebolting (or pay for it) when the ringbolts wear out.
