The second bolt on Desperado (5.10+) broke under body weight according to a sign in the ranger station.

This photo shows the air pollution in Juarez immediately after a huge rain, so this is a good day. After observing a possible relationship between polluted rain from Denver and weaker bolts, I'm hypothesizing that air pollution increases the rate of bolt corrosion at Hueco.
