It is not the weight of jewel or plate, Or the fondle of silk or fur; 'Tis the spirit in which the gift is rich, As the gifts of the Wise Ones were, And we are not told whose gift was gold
Edmund Vance Cooke quote
Anywhere you have an active level of climbing, you're going to see fixed anchors. There are different kinds of fixed anchors, from a bolt drilled into a rock or an old-time piton hammered into a crack. It's everything from the actual hardware to nylon webbing wrapped around an outcrop. They provide protection for climbers and are particularly useful when you're coming down or rappelling.
