Comments: ^^^Those look like old recycled hangers from rebolting efforts on older routes, methinks. Leeper hanger and an old knifeblade piton from the looks of it. Kinda wish those wouldn't make a re-appearance on newer routes. So...not really "homemade" but "re-purposed".

Comments: Surely this route is a cure for the "Pox in Vulgaria".

Comments: Not to be overly argumentative, but, you have the rope through both chain links on the bottom...and, the carabiners are a great idear to keep the wear off the chain. Methinks there's a higher chance of your locking carabiner jamming its locking sleeve than either chain link failing. Just seems overly difficult to clean especially, but, nice for wear and tear on the anchor.

A set of short quickdraws might make rope pull/TRing easier too, and, still be a way to keep the wear off the anchor.

You wouldn't need both lockers IMHO. Just a single non locker really.

Comments: Rick, I note there's a route to the left known as Dark Rock, Good Rock. This route is just to the right of that route I think.

Comments: Not just the fixed draw, JK, but, the rap chains are super visible. Bright shiny and huge. I appreciate whoever is maintaining routes, but, please, camo the chains. They are REALLY high visibility and the area, with the little amphitheater and paved trails below, is high traffic for non-climbers.
