That is ridiculous. Unless there is a rock quality issue not apparent in the picture, anchor bolts should not be so far apart. In good rock spacing them the distance between your spread pinky and thumb is fine. Giant lengths of chain should only be used if you absolutely have to place the bolts somewhere to get good quality rock which would then make the rope run over a sharp edge. I had to use long chains over the roof on Man overboard at Rumney, but I hate the way they look. Out at a place like Rainbow I think you particularly want to keep the anchors low impact visually.People, please stop using stud bolts too. They kind of suck, for a bunch of reasons. If you are going to use those pre-made ring anchors, the double ring ones are much better than the single ring per hanger. I just got some on sale from Fixe at $5.50 a piece (unfortunately back up to $14 now, but keep checking for sales) http://www.fixehardware.com/shop/anchors/fixe-ss-1/2-double-ring-anchor/1/2" SS Rawls on sale for $4.90 right now http://www.fixehardware.com/shop/bolts/powers-ss-1/2-x-2-3/4-5-piece-bolt-r5930/ Grab them while you can! They are what I mostly use in granite or other really hard rock. Use a fairly fresh bit so the hole is not too tight and clean it well with brush and blowbulb.
