Comments: There are a number of new routes in this area that have Fixe hangers painted dark brown and use twisted 3/8" quicklinks for rappel anchors. Hopefully, the FA team will add the requisite information to the Mountain Project database.

Comments: Dale Haas and I replaced the cold shut hangers at the anchor with SS Fixe. We added SS quicklinks and rings. The hardware for this project was provided by the American Safe Climbing Association - ASCA (www.safeclimbing.org). They appreciate your support.

Nice to see the stuff I put up there 12 years ago (plated 5/16" quicklinks + link of 3/8" chain) was in OK shape, but stainless is better.

Comments: Dale Haas and I replaced the first bolt (cold shut hanger) on this route with a SS Powers Power-Bolt (AKA 5-piece) and SS Fixe hanger.

Also, we added quicklinks and 3 links of 3/8" chain to each anchor bolt at the start of the route to help with the rappel.

The hardware for this work was provided by the American Safe Climbing Association (ASCA-www.safeclimbing.org). They appreciate your support.

Comments: Dale Haas and I replaced the worn cold shuts at the belay on pitch 2 with SS Powers Power-Bolts (AKA 5-piece). We added SS quicklinks and SS rings to the new bolts.

We also added SS quicklinks and SS rings to the belay at the top of pitch 1. Someone else had replaced the cold shuts on this anchor with regular hangers.

Lastly, we replaced the cold shut hanger on the first bolt of this route with a SS Fixe hanger.

Comments: Dale Haas and I went up on this route today to replace the broken Mussy Hooks. It turns out that only one of the original hooks had a broken gate. We replaced that hook. Thanks to Ron Olsen for supplying the replacement hook.

Comments: Dale Haas and I replaced the four bolts on this climb with 3/8" SS Powers Power-Bolts (AKA 5-piece). Most people only clip the first three bolts when doing this route. The fourth bolt is about 20 feet up and slightly left of the anchor shared by Chouette and Splash.

Comments: I think it is very important to point out that this area is a *designated* area for gun enthusiasts with signs indicating that shooting is permitted. This isn't just an area where people come to party, congregate, or camp and sometimes someone brings a gun. This area is *designated* for shooting so expect people to be there shooting, and since there is no specific gun range, expect them to be shooting near you and hopefully not at you!

Comments: The anchor bolts are no longer loose. Someone tightened them before me. I loosened them, put on some thread locker, and tightened them back up.

Comments: That actually looks like a screw/quick link and not a cold shut which is being cut. Was it possible to unscrew the link rather than cut it?
