If you left your draw on the first bolt of the Suffering...

... at the Monastery, it is now hanging on the 2nd bolt, without interfering with the perma-draw on 2nd, and should be easily retrieved.

I wasn't sure whether to leave it at the anchors, or somewhere else, but didn't want to leave the aluminum draw on 1st.

FYI, your draw was hanging in the first bolt upside-down (e.i. the rope-side 'biner on the bolt, the bolt-side 'biner for clipping). Maybe you had a good reason for hanging your draw this way, but i couldn't think of one. I could, however, think of a reason not to do it: the biner that comes in contact with the bolt hanger can get notched or bured if you fall on it; if you subsequently flip the 'biner, and clip a rope through that 'biner, it could, potentially, damage the sheath of your rope in a fall.

Petzl also had an example pic of how if you clip a quickdraw upside down and take a swinging lead fall, you are way more likely to nose hook the biner (because the rubber insert being on the wrong side causes the caribiner to rotate where the nose is) and have it break on you.

I don't get it Redpiont, could you elaborate on that, maybe with some pictures too?
