CONDITION REPORT 
The bolts are good, but the glued pitons, though solid, seem to wiggle slightly. Great shade most of the day. Fun and a good route for running laps.

topside anchor consists of 2 pitons and a bolt, and the bolt is now loose as well

FYI, the topside anchor is not equipped for rap. there are no rap chains or rings. walk off by scrambling up and over the backside, then down either climber's left or climber's right, that both ways reach the ground
