DescriptionField tests of the load-carrying capacity of epoxy-grouted rock anchors in poor quality bedrock on Wrangel Island in southeast Alaska demonstrated the effectiveness of rock anchors as substitutes for stump anchors for logging system guylines. Ultimate capacity depends mainly on rock hardness or strength and length of the imbedded anchor.
