In quite a few cases the risk is minimal to none until you are on the pitch itself, which was certainly the case in Marble Sink where we placed virtually no anchors before any pitch heads because it's all but impossible to fall down any of them until you are on them! I suspect the rationale for Quaking was much the same. With that in mind, I was surprised to see a comment above suggesting there should always be an anchor before a pitch head.
