New Rift Pot is equipped with mixture of Eco 'P' resin anchors and IC resin anchors within the BCA Anchor scheme.

The cave is mostly P-anchors (these are the anchors shown on the current topo), however, additional IC anchors installed during 2016 on Route 66 to Coates Cavern to create a drier hang. Full details for this newly anchored route shown in Descent 250 (June 2016). Rope lengths from current rigging topo remain valid.
