I use a combination of rope and webbing for top-rope anchors. But, i very rarely top-rope these days, I'm more into sport climbing now, and I've just started dabbling in trad stuff...trad is bloody great

Well, the rack has expanded a bit lately, I'm now almost looking like a man. Recent additions include:
- Another set of Black Diamond nuts ($180).
- A set of 6 Black Diamond Camalots (0.5 - 4) with 12 Black Diamond wiregate beaners thrown in ($784).
- A set of 7 second hand (good condition) HB quad cams (0 - 3) with beaners ($350).

One thing I've noticed is that Australia is very expensive for climbing gear. Also, HB quad cams are bloody awesome!

My next purchase will be some smaller cams. I've heard great things about Alien cams. Does anyone have any experience with them?
