I love how-to articles. Even if people are bound to argue over "preferred best practices," I think it's great to have material like this on SP.

Thanks for the contribution.

Re: Thanks

Agreed because if nothing else it opens up a forum of discussion regarding preferred methods. Cheers!

Well written article. I never use one, but it's a legit way to make an anchor in certain situations.

This is basically a double-length runner used in a sliding-X configuration. Why not use that? I don't see a reason for using 4 strands--it's just more stuff to mess with. The usual way of clipping a sliding-X is to put a single twist in one of the strands, then clip both. You're still through the loop in the event on end rips, but you have both strands to hold the force when they both hold.

Re: Quad

The the reason is to give you redundancy also in a situation where your webbing snaps at any one point. Overkill? Perhaps.

Little late to the party on this post, but this is such a great anchor and everyone should be comfortable using it. There is another great description on a blog I follow called Seeking Exposure. The link to the article is below...
