Comments: Dale Haas and I did some minor route maintenance today. We replaced the worn Mussy Hooks. We made sure all the bolts were tight. Lastly, I trundled the block with the white X on it about 3/4 of the way up the climb to the right. It is now a cheat stone to keep your shoes clean while you try and get established on the footholds at the start.

Comments: Dale Haas and I removed the two cold shut anchors at the top of pitch 3. We added a Powers 5-piece SS bolt and Fixe double ring hanger to complement the SS Triplex wedge bolt and Fixe double ring hanger added by Darren Mabe and Casey Bernal.

We also replaced the cold shut hangers and plated bolts at the pitch 4 anchor with Powers SS bolts and Fixe double ring hangers.

Now, the anchors at the top of pitches 2, 3, and 4 all have SS bolts and SS hardware.

Comments: Dale Haas and I tightened all the anchor bolts on the eight anchors we replaced in June 2013. A couple bolts were loose, one on Skimbleshanks and one on Old Deuteronomy. The rest were fine.

Comments: The last pitch of White Trash provides a nice, moderate alternative to the last pitch of Euro trash. Clip the first couple of bolts of Euro Trash, place some pro in the dihedral/crack on the left then traverse up and right to the first bolt of the third pitch of White Trash.

Comments: I believe the name for this route comes from the mythical "Seven Cities of Gold" in the Mexican desert also known as 'Cibola'.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seven_Ci...

In that vein the route name should actually be 'Cibola.'

Comments: Lenny,

The 5-piece bolt in the photo you show at the base of the pitch 3 belay is not stainless steel. It is plated steel. You can tell by the three lines on the head which indicates it is Grade 5 carbon steel.

Comments: As a bit of history, this crag used to be a bit shorter in height. In the mid-80's they excavated dirt from the base to make it taller.
