|Thad Walker and I replaced all the completely ancient tat around that hollow flake masquerading as a rap anchor. I swear that we hacked thru the FAist tat in that mess at some point. In the spirit of the Glass we replaced it with 1/2 static rope rapped in webbing doubled over with two carabiners. It will soon look like it did before we replaced it and a bolt anchor will probably have to go in.|

Completely overlooked classic.
If it weren't for the 2 large ledges that break up this one long pitch this thing would be the best intro 5.10 in the state. And still kinda is. Heady and safe. Delicate and Powerful. Convoluted and direct.
And thank god for whomever had the vision, balls, ambition etc to put the bolts on top.
Long live common sense!
